I've had the same cvs trouble several times.  What I usually do is
something like:

	$ cd /usr/pkgsrc/foo/bar
	$ su root -c "chmod -R toshii ."
	<hack away>
	$ cvs -d 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...
