Check the directory above your repository, make sure the CVS users have 
at least read and list directory permissions for the directories above 
your repository.  I think that only happens when upgrading from a fairly 
old version to a new one (where "old" could be anything > 6 months old, 
when you're watching the details, revisions fly by).
