I just instigated admin controls by opening up and configuring the UserAdminOptions setting. My account is a member of Linux "cvsadmin" group, yet like non-privileged users I cannot execute admin commands.

Then you're not really a member of the cvsadmin group.  If you just
added your account to the group, you have to log out and back in again
before it takes effect.  The "id" command will show you which groups
you're really a member of.

That's the confusing thing; "id" tells me I'm a member of cvsadmin. Is there any restriction about userid range? I'm 1000, cvsadmin group is 502.
