I wondered about that.  So, per your suggestion, I modified the way my
path gets set up, and here's what happened:

[mrichter at sushi lane]$ cvs diff Makefile
poll: protocol failure in circuit setup
cvs [diff aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

[mrichter at sushi lane]$ rsh khan ls
poll: protocol failure in circuit setup

[mrichter at sushi lane]$ which rsh

[mrichter at sushi lane]$ ls -l ~/bin/rsh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 mrichter RnD 12 Jul  7 13:14 /home/mrichter/bin/rsh ->


[mrichter at sushi ~]$ echo $PATH

[mrichter at sushi ~]$

Apparently, it is a problem with /usr/bin/rsh itself....
