I was having the same problem with the same client server versions. My client was on a Linux system and CVSNT was on a windows box. I just upgraded the client and server side to the latest version and am in the process of evaluating the new server. My files now retain the executable setting when committing and checking out. Hope this helps.

Ok, the problem seems to be when committing a file. I changed the permissions to Full Control for Admin, Domain Users & Everyone, made a change and then committed the file. I looked in the RCS file and the permissions were 666. I manually editted the RCS file to change it to 777 and checked the file out again. This time the permissions were set better. It wasn't Full Control, but it was enough to gain execute permissions. I then modified the file and committed it again without modifying the permissions. Again the new revision in the RCS file has permissions of 666. This was all done with 2.0.51 client and 2.0.41 server, both running on Win2K with NTFS.
