Ahh - good explanation, makes sense to me.

I assume you mean you set 'cvsadmin' as 'run as user' in the CVSNT
control panel (not the services control panel)?

You should never ever run CVSNT as the user 'cvsadmin', this group name
is reserved on CVSNT (unix/linux) for administrators - running CVSNT as
cvsadmin will in effect mean that all users become administrators.  One
windows servers it *should* have no effect (because we use the
Administrators group there) but it's still best avoided:

For CVSNT users and groups are always interchangable (so a user named
cvsadmin is the same as a group named cvsadmin).
