Sorry to kept this up.  The "" removal might
have made the difference.  It is now
apparently working for 'junkcvs', but checkout is not working for
'fortworth'.  Here is CVSROOT (should permissions be stricter for

address@hidden txdotcvs]$ ls -l
total 16
drwxrwxr-x    3 asquith  cvsadmin     4096 May 31 15:05 CVSROOT
drwxr-xr-x    3 asquith  txdotcvs     4096 May 31 15:06 cvslocks
drwxrwxr-x    2 asquith  txdotcvs     4096 May 31 13:48 fortworth
drwxrwxrwx    2 asquith  txdotcvs     4096 May 31 13:40 junkcvs

I can checkout 'junkcvs' and 'fortworth' as 'asquith' who is member
of txdotcvs and cvsadmin.  I can not checkout as 'wasquith' who is a
member of txdotcvs only.

address@hidden fortworth]$ cvs co fortworth
cvs checkout: Updating fortworth
cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory in repository
`/home/dotcvs/fortworth': Permission denied
cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository
`/home/dotcvs/fortworth'cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed -
giving up

address@hidden asquith]$ cvs co fortworth
cvs checkout: Updating fortworth

Is the group txdotcvs not being picked up by user wasquith?  Notice
that world has write permission on junkcvs.
