Check the advanced tab on the server cvsnt control panel for "allow
clients to trace server".  Ensure it is DISABLED, then from a client do:
cvs -ttt tag testtag file.txt

This should create a long trace and no lines should be prefixed with S
for server.

Now go back to the server and set "allow clients to trace server" to
ENABLED and re-run the test, now some lines should be prefixed with "S"
- send the two full traces to me directly (the list wont accept them)
and I'll see if anything stands out - ut I agree with Tony's comments -
that message comes from CVSNT server and means that the server is in
read-only mode.
