I'm not running any antivirus software nor anything else that would lock 
the files in the CvsTemp folder.

I do, however, have some new information regarding this issue.

I ran the SysInternals Filemon program to find out exactly what was 
going on with the filesystem and discovered that when I do a commit with 
a user that works, the cvs.exe process does the following:

READ; F:\cvsroot\repo1\module1\source\Login.cs,v; SUCCESS
QUERY INFORMATION, F:\cvstemp\cvs-serv1696\Login.cs; NOT FOUND

And when I do the same commit on the Login.cs file with a user that does 
not work, the cvs.exe process does the following:

QUERY INFORMATION, F:\cvstemp\cvs-serv1234\Login.cs; SUCCESS
QUERY INFORMATION; F:\cvsroot\repo1\module1\source\,Login.cs,v; NOT FOUND

Notice the comma "," before the filename ",Login.cs,v".  What's that 

Is this a bug in CVSNT?
