Receiving this message whenever I try to check in files to local RCS
directories on this machine.  Same issue occurs on CVS.  Wondering if
a setting was changed somewhere, this has been happening for over a
month now.

Cygcheck.out file attached, and the output of a few commands is below.


=====OUTPUT OF MOUNT COMMAND=====
kchristian@server ~>mount

C: on /cygdrive/c type ntfs (binary,posix=0,user,noumount,auto)
