     I am trying to start using ACLs on cvsnt repo.  It worked as expected on directories, but maybe 
I found a bug when dealing with ACLs on files.

     I give the user "read" permission on the directory, and "none" permission on all files.  Then I 
give "read" permission to a specific file.  It works for update, denying user access to the blocked 
files, but a checkout can read every file on the directory despite its permissions.

    What I want to do is to allow the user access to only some files, preferably default to none, 
and explicitly to some.

     If it matters, the client is a Linux Fedora, and the server is a FreeBSD.

     Thanks in advance for a quick answer, we just need this to finish deployment of CVS access to 
new employees.
