Also try running commit with -ttt (cvs -ttt commit -m "") and look to see if there are any interesting messages in the log.  In particular look for messages just before the error, and also at the top you will see it determine all the groups the user is a member of - check that engineering is one of those groups.

It turns out that my problem was that a
virus scanner had been installed via the domain policy,
disabling the virus scanner real-time scanning mode has made it all 
start working....

The virus scanner in question was Symatec Antivirus and cvsdiag failed
to detect it.

Thanks for the help
