if ~/.cvspass doesn't exist, cvs login doesn't work. It should create the 

[root@spock kdelibs]# cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:bero@cvs.kde.org:2401/home/kde
CVS password:
cvs login: failed to open /root/.cvspass for reading: No such file or 
directory cvs [login aborted]: fatal error: exiting
[root@spock kdelibs]# touch /root/.cvspass
[root@spock kdelibs]# cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:bero@cvs.kde.org:2401/home/kde

[works now]

Just got caught by it again - so tired of this that I fixed it myself. ;)
1.11.1p1-3 is fixed.
