As you can see from the above.. despite what you have set in your
environment variable (CVSROOT), the cvs client will go with the CVS/Root
entry. So if you are inside your working copy of the cvs, it will ignore
your environment variable.

You have 2 options:

1. Change the CVSROOT entries in your CVS/ subdirectories in your local
working copy and simply do a cvs update.

2. Check out a fresh copy of CVS.

Have fun.
