Oh ya I don't know if it helps but here is the output (for my user) from
setting the ServerTraceLog

13:24:15: S -> CVS Server is acting as member of domain 'AMAT'
13:24:15: S -> Client sent 'BEGIN SSPI'
13:24:15: S -> Authentication protocol returned user(AMAT\BBeauchaine87408)
13:24:15: S -> Impersonating preauthenticated user using protocol specific
13:24:15: S -> wnt_chmod(C:\WINDOWS\TEMP/cvs-serv3080,0700)
13:24:15: S -> Client compatibility level is 1
13:24:16: S -> unlink_file_dir(C:\WINDOWS\TEMP/cvs-serv3080)

For my self

It continues on and is eventually succesful but you can already see in this
little bit that it has gotten further.

I've got my IT guy looking at permissions and security settings, maybe he
will find something.
