cvs + xinetd setgid problem

Why are you even trying to use 'pserver' for write operations?  That's
a security hole waiting to bit you in the rear.  You should only really
use pserver for read operations (i.e. anonymous cvs).  IMHO it should not
be used for anything else.

You should use cvs over ssh for write access.

I'd also recommend you look into cvsd to limit your anon-cvs to a
chroot'ed environment.
