Perhaps CVSROOT should have


at the start?  Here's mine:

    set CVSROOT=:ext:tim_one@cvs.python.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/python

Monkey see, monkey do, usually works best for software written by apes

Bingo on this one:  your Patch Manager permissions were set to "Tech only".
I think that's the default.  I've changed them to "Tech & Admin" for
nowonder, so that problem should be solved now.
