We are running CVSNT on Windows 2003 and use SSPI.  We have several 
users working with CVSNT just fine, but recently any new user we create 
is unable to commit.  This is the error we are getting:

cvs [server aborted]: could not open lock file 
'/cvsroot/web/Project1/source/Login/,Login.cs,': Permission denied
cvs commit: saving log message in 

I've ensured that testuser4 has necessary NTFS permissions; he is in the 
exact same groups as other users.

I've restarted the CVS and Locking services with no luck.  I even tried 
rebooting the server; again no luck.

Here's the output from "cvslock -test"

CVSLock 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 (Jul  5 2006) starting in test mode.

Also, whenever testuser4 attempts to commit, temp files are written to 
the CvsTemp folder but are not deleted.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
