This means that the user doesn't have permissions to access the directory.

No idea of this syntax - can you translate?

What about E:\ - if they don't have traversal access they can't even see 
the cvstemp diretory (which is the cause of the 'results may not be 
correct' - CVS can't determine the correct case of the directory so you 
can end up with errors, some of them nasty like locking failures).

Log in as the user then try to make a directory in E:/cvstemp.  It'll 
probably fail...
