That error isn't generated by any version of cvsnt (or evs) that I can
find, so it's most likely something to do with your client.  It's
probably worth contacting the vendor directly to ask about that.

In cvsnt an explicit deny will always stop any further processing. 
Normal usage is to set aclmode=normal and add specific users/groups to 
the permit list.
