Description of problem:
I just upgraded to the most recent cvs errata package released yesterday (20th
January) and now I can't login to cvs. I upgraded using up2date. Now when I try
to login:

moos:pts/0 16:30 [~] 1> cvs login
Logging in to
CVS password: 
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from cvs pserver:
cannot open /home/moos/REPOSITORY/CVSROOT/config: Permission denied

I'm not sure why this is happening. The permissions on the config file are the
same as they were before I upgraded:

moos:pts/0 16:35 [~] 0> ls -l ~/REPOSITORY/CVSROOT/config
-r--r--r--    1 moos     moos          527 Oct  1 16:36

So, for now I can't use CVS, unless I downgrade, but that re-opens a security
hole, so this is pretty annoying. Please help.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to most recent cvs package
2. Try to log in
3. And you can't.

Haven't heard anything on this; please help, I need to have this cvs server

well, this lack of response has been pretty disappointing.

I've switched the computer (and our other linux computers) to Debian.
