Did you set a LockServer for your CVS Server?  If not, then people checking
out files need to be able to create temporary lock files in the directory,
whether they are checking out read-only or not.

> Hi, all:
> I just set the CVS users permission exactly as
> http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/setAcl <http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki/setAcl>  and
> also set different access level on each module we have on the repository.
> If the user have R/W permit on a module, he will have no problem to check
> out/browse to the deep folder of that module.
> However, if the user only have Read-only right (Read & Execute, List
> Contents, Read), he will have trouble to do both. I would hope the user
> should be able to check out (I set it Check out read only option for them)
> the module, just can't edit.
> I got the following message when the CVS user tried to check out the
> Read-only permission Module.  I don't know what I did wrong.
> CVSNT 2.08 running on Win 2000, SSPI protocol, wincvs client.  Thanks for
> your help.
