Am I correct in thinking that a cvsnt server, running on a Linux machine,
which is configured to see Active Directory groups, should respect those
groups for ACL's?

Tony, you mentioned in a previous thread that using cvs -ttt would show the
ALC logic.  I am familiar with using "-ttt" in various commands for
debugging, but I don't know which command should return the ACL logic.  I
don't see anything when using "cvs -ttt update".  Someone else had this
problem, and it went away when he moved from a VM server to a real physical
server.  Could have been a configuration issue.  I have checked everything I
can think of.  Any help would be appreciated.
