Make sure that the readers file has permissions set to 640.  The system
account that the CVS user is asigned to needs to have group access to
this file.  I can't think of anything else that might be causing the
problem off the top of my head, but I'd imagine it to be a permissions
problem.  One other thing that worked for me when I was having problems
(I forget which problem exactly) was to simply re-initialize the
repository (with cvs init).

DOH!  I should've realized that not only did your original post state
that you were using the program but you've been corresponding with me (or
maybe I just wanted to get another plug in for it j/k)!
