As per its name, there shouldn't be any files or directories in Emptydir
-- it should be an empty directory.  You should find out who added that
directory and where they really expected it to be in the repository and
move it there.  (Once you do, anyone who has it checked out will have to
correct the CVS/Repository file in their working directory to match the
new location.)  CVS 1.11 won't permit creating files or directories in

Read-only access on the file is correct, only the directories need to be
writable to allow checkout and checkin.  What are the permissions on the
Emptydir directory itself?  I suspect that users need rwx.
