[Sorry, didn't see this first time round]

If you're operating on NTFS - as you must be if you're getting
permission problems - then file auditing is your friend.  Turn it on and
set up auditing on absolutely everything under c:\cvstemp.  Then do
whatever to reproduce the error.  Check the security event log, and you
should find out what caused the permission denial.  Most usefully, the
file path, the process that caused the problem, and the type of access
requested are all logged.

filemon, from http://www.sysinternals.com/, will do similar things in a
nice neat Windows package.  Freeware, and runs under XP.

Best of luck,
