Not closable - Eugen didn't have a pserver to test against.

Can't duplicate testing.  Flagging as closeable

If I make a <<cvs -d ":pserver:user name@fileserver/repo" login>> it succeeds and username and password is stored in ~/.cvspass.

A later <<cvs -d ":pserver:user name@fileserver/repo" co something>> fails becuase it could not pickup the scrambled password from ~/.cvspass.

The parsing of the ~/.cvspass file fails (without any message) if the username contains a space.

The attached patch fixes this and everything works.

This have been tested on FreeBSD 6.2 RELEASE with
cvs 1.11.17-FreeBSD (client/server)
cvs 1.11.22 (client/server)
