In bash, when I log in cvs site, the strange thing happend. Look into the
password area, I keyed in "anoncvs", it shows the password "v" and showed
"v" in the next command line.

I set HOME = c:\cygwin

bash-2.05a$ cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:/cvs/ecos login
Logging in to :pserver:anoncvs@sources.redhat.com:2401/cvs/ecos
CVS password: v
cvs.exe login: authorization failed: server sources.redhat.com rejected
access to /cvs/eco
s for user anoncvs
bash-2.05a$ vecho $HOME
bash: vecho: command not found
bash-2.05a$ echo $HOME

Looks like your "HOME" environment variable is st to C:\ which doesn't look

Are you sure you are using the *cygwin* CVS client? If so, from a cygwin
bash prompt what does "echo $HOME" return?
