I have cvsnt running which I access from a linux box to add 
and checkout files from the cvsnt repository to/from the linux 
box. I notice when I add a new file which has linux execute bit 
set that when the file is checked out the execute bit is lost; 
this is different to how an add/checkout would work with 
a repository on linux (which would retain the permissions on 
the checked in file). Is this simply a feature of how cvsnt 
works; i.e. a restriction because of NT's differing permissions 
mechanism or is there someway to work around this?
