The most common source of that error is a missing CVSROOT/Emptydir
directory and lack of permission to create it.  The simplest fix is to
run "cvs init" as a user who has write permission in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT.
(It's safe to run init on an existing repository -- it preserves all the
existing stuff and just creates anything that's missing.)
