Thanks for the explanation Tony.  Any idea what might be causing this then?
I've set the NTFS permissions on the directory to be the CVSNT service user,
as well as my own user (since not using impersonation).  Futhermore, I've
even tried using giving "Everyone" full control but to no avail.  Is this an
NTFS security thing I should be tracking down or a CVS issue?

Thanks for info!
