cvs question

I'm being driven slowly mad by cvs...

I have 3 boxes, one is acting as a cvs server.  The "cvs clients" (for
lack of a better term) are running 6.1 and should be configured the
same.  Yet, one machine lets me do a cvs login, the other requires I
use cvs -d :psserver:.. with each cvs command.

I do not have CVSROOT set on either machine.

What I get is this:

[#822] cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:myname at myserver/home/foo/bar
cvs login: authorization failed: server myserver rejected access to
/home/foo/bar for user mgrant

yet, on the other machine, I get a password prompt and all is fine.

Ideas?  Suggestions?
