The trace clearly shows the machine is configured as standalone.
Check the CVSNT control panel - has someone set the 'use local users'
setting in the 'advanced' tab?

The owner of a directory has effectively admin rights on that
directory (as they created it).  If you don't set owner then only
repository admins have admin rights.
