Hello everybody,

when I check out the CVSROOT directory of my repository using

    cvs -d :pserver:myself at MYSERVER:/MYREPOSITORY  checkout CVSROOT

cvs fails with the error message  "cvs server: User myself cannot read 

All directories and files in the repository are owned by the user 
'MYSERVER\Administrator' with full file permissions for everybody (this was 
done in despair only!). However,

*) any of the other modules can be checked out without problems, only 
checkout of CVSROOT fails

*) checking out CVSROOT succeeds when I use Administrator at MYREPOSITORY 
instead of myself at MYREPOSITORY

I tried both cvs server options 'Run as user: (client user)'  and  'Run as 
user: MYSERVER\Administrator', both show the same symptoms.

Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance!
