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 :pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/home2/cvsroot co ccvs'
and I've yet to encounter any problems...
Is the anoncvs.netbsd.org setup configured to create the CVS lock files
in a separate directory, and if so is that directory definitely writable
by the "anoncvs" user?
