I'm not sure...  Something to do with device inodes, links and other 
combinations of stuff I think.  The obvious answer to me is to not 
handle these and just do the read/write/execute bits, but the cvs 
developers decided to disable the whole thing (probably simpler, since 
the code is all over the place at the moment).
