I do not think this is true.  I have just tried to do a cvs login to a 
unix machine at work which does not have a cvs server.  It still asks me 
for a password regardless of whether a cvs server is running or not.  It 
seems that as long as a valid host name is supplied, then a password 
will be prompted for before trying to communicate with the cvs server.
