setgid failed: Operation not permitted

I'm running a CVS pserver as a non-root user (cvs) on host cvs. I have created a mapping for each user in the CVSROOT/passwd file:


A few users are getting a "setgid failed: Operation not permitted" error, but only when accessing the repository via SSH port forwarding (ssh -L 2401:cvs:2401, with CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/cvs). Everything works when accessing the repository directly (with CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/cvs).

The server version is 1.11.5. Every file in the repository is owned by group cvs (which is the primary group of user cvs). Should the files be owned by user cvs as well?

Any ideas what the problem might be, or how to go about tracking it down?
