We're using WinCvs 1.2, cvs 1.10.8 and ntserver access method in an all NT
4 SP6-network. There are approximately 30 users using cvs.

If I connect to a network share using another username than my own, cvs
will start using this user as the one that has committed files to the
repository. This will continue until I disconnect the share.

This behaviour is annoying since a lot of my cvs-users (and myself) will
connect to shares this way from time to time in order to do some
administrative work on eg. a web-server, and any commits made thereafter
will log the wrong user (which will often happen to be "administrator" or
the like).

Is there any way to avoid this?
Can I peek somwhere to see which user cvs will use?
Can I make cvs refuse to commit files with certain usernames (like
