The workaround mentioned (changing the default ACLs) does seem to work, but it will take some time before I can get changes to support that workaround onto the production build server here.

I had to modify the workaround a bit for the production machines:

  setfacl -m d:g:Users:--- .
  setfacl -m d:u:Administrators:--- .

And then checking out into '.' appears to work.  Is there a way I can file a bug or track this issue to know when it is fixed?
