Re: file lock issue with cygwin 1.5.10-3, cvs 1.1.6-3


	Thanks for looking into this.  In my case, there is nothing funny with
permissions and also the CYGWIN envar is unset.  If I cd to my $CVSROOT
directory, I can create files and directories, and also within
subdirectories under $CVSROOT.  Also, the permissions seem okay under
1.5.9-1 (no complaints from cvs).  The $CVSROOT root directory is from a
file server mounted as CIFS under Windows.  Are you referring to remote CVS
repositories with your SSH comment?

Thanks, Mark

I just tried that and I'm only able to reproduce it if the $CVSROOT/www
directory is read-only.  In this case it fails for me in 1.5.10 *and*
in 1.5.9, so I don't see a difference... except when logged in via
OpenSSH using public key authentication.  In that case I'm able to
checkout the directory under 1.5.9 but not under 1.5.10.  AFAICS, the
behaviour under 1.5.10 is "right"(tm).  Does the description match
your situation?
