My guess is the directory permissions are missing the sticky bit.
Someone with shell root access will have to fix it (alternatively, I
could, if given shell access temporarily).
Elfyn, do you have trouble checking out htdocs/goldstars? If not, this
would be very strange, as I used "cvs add" to add both directories...
Maybe something's wrong with the CVSROOT scripts (or the Emptydir, I'm not
quite sure how cvs does it).
