Yes - the same potential problem is there with SSH and this is solved with
cvsagent. I just ran a test and it does work - a bit more clumsily than
with SSH (you get prompted for the password twice initially - once from CVS
and once from CVSAGENT, the password to cvsagent is the only one that
"matters"). In case you don't know - cvsagent stores the password in
private memory and destroys it upon close - as long as CVSAGENT runs you do
not need to re-enter the password.
Can you give me a URL regerence to cvsnt.org/manual for that page and I'll
create a bug on it - it should refer to cvsagent in some way.
I suppose a nice feature would be a "secure" client that wont write to
.cvspass registry on windows without giving a warning that the user should
