I think I've just hit the same problem. There was some discussion about it
earlier this month but I didn't pay attention as it worked ok for me.
However I now have a problem that may be caused by the fix in 2.0.50 for the
original problem:

Previously I was running Server 2.0.41, Client 2.0.41a and WinCVS
With this everything was ok. Yesterday I upgraded to WinCVS, which
includes Client 2.0.51. Apart from the annoyance of loosing the default
CVSROOT, everything seemed ok at first.

Just now I checked out our project and found that the file security
permissions were set so that I could not execute the build scripts.
Previously all the files just inherited their permissions from the parent,
so 'Everyone' got Full Control. This has now changed so that
'Administrators', 'Domain Users' and 'Everyone' has Read and Write
permissions only. Nobody has execute permissions.

Is this due to an incompatibility with the Server 2.0.41 and the Client
2.0.51? Will upgrading the server to 2.0.51 at the same time as the client
fix this problem? Is there some other setting I've missed? Both the client
and server are running on Win2K, no *nix involved at all.

I have now gone back to Client 2.0.41a and it now goes back to the previous
behaviour. (I just copied the dir from a colleagues machine, didn't
re-install or re-register anything. Is this ok?)
