Thank you for clarifying that.  I've just looked at the Make New Module
dialog and found the "Check out files read only" check-box at the bottom
of the Options page.  So that must be why my modules are being created
read-only.  I'll uncheck that next time I make a module.

This is definitely NOT true. TortoiseCVS does nothing to enforce "watch
on" - the only place where a "cvs watch on" command can be issued is
when creating a new module (there's a checkbox that will cause a "cvs
watch on" command to be run after creating the module). If you selected
this checkbox when you created the module, that will be the explanation.

Simply run a "cvs watch off" command with no arguments in the top level
folder of the sandbox.
