It's not completing the password, it's just a bit unfortunate that the cvs
server is called anoncvs.cygnus.com and the password is anoncvs ... I just
try to login and did a cvs -z3 update guile-core without problem.

In csh or tcsh, do the following:
%> setenv CVSROOT :pserver:anoncvs@anoncvs.cygnus.com:/cvs/guile
%> cvs login
type 'anoncvs' at the password prompt
There should be no further message. You can now update/checkout guile
modules (run 'cvs -z3 checkout modules' to find out which modules are
available). 

On second thought, the fact that your cvs login complained about an unknown
host means that there is something wrong with your DNS configuration. Try
running 'nslookup anoncvs.cygnus.com'; you should get an error and fix your
DNS setup ( /etc/resolv.conf under Linux ).
