We're receiving a strange error for some of our developers.  Others aren't
seeing it, even though we are all using the same software versions.  It may
be a rights issue, but I haven't nailed that down despite spending quite a
few hours looking at it.

We are using WinCVS (client) and CVSNT 2.0.26 (server).

After almost any operation- checkout, commit, update, etc, they get
something like the following:
      cvs edit: cannot open x:/cvs/repo/.history,v: Permission Denied

Otherwise, functionality appears to be fine including logging in the
CVSROOT/history file.

I do have directory/file security configured.  The CVSROOT/history file is
set for update from all CVS users.  There is no .history,v file and in any
case, the message isn't pointing to the CVSROOT directory.  Any ideas?
