Hmmm... That is kind of a dangerous umask you have there...

Where $CVSROOT /opt/CP_IDS_CVSROOT and a user just created a new temp
directory under the Docs module? Is the group for temp the same as the
default group for the user that created it?

You may need to 

    find $CVSROOT -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod g+s

in order that newly created directories added to the cvs repository are
in group cvs.
