I've had the same cvs trouble several times. What I usually do is
$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/foo/bar
$ su root -c "chmod -R toshii ."
$ cvs -d firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot ci
As /usr/pkgsrc/foo is owned by root and isn't writable for me, I
suspected this might be a permission issue. I don't think this is a
likely cause, but this is the only possible cause I can think of
except for the repository side issue.
Maybe I will hook cvs into gdb and look into this issue...
