Well, I couldn't remember which this was but here's a bit from the
cvsup man page:

The GUI interacts poorly with some window managers, notably FVWM.  There
     are problems with both versions 1 and 2 of FVWM, though it appears
     that they are not as bad in version 2.  Adding the line
           Style "cvsup" ClickToFocus
     to FVWM2's .fvwmrc file helps quite a bit.  The problem appears to be
     caused by window manager bugs, triggered by the GUI's use of the
     `WM_TAKE_FOCUS' protocol.  As a work-around, you can always use the
     sup-compatible GUI provided by the -g option.

Well, then you're stuck I guess.  :-)
