Hmmm....  There's no similar problem with the CVS "pserver" method.

I've been maintaining some local changes in CVS itself simply by keeping
them in a working directory checked out from the Cyclic anonymous server
with 'cvs -d co ccvs'
and I've yet to encounter any problems...

Is the setup configured to create the CVS lock files
in a separate directory, and if so is that directory definitely writable
by the "anoncvs" user?
