I'm afraid the short term fix is to tell the user to run the test as a user
who is a member of cvsadmin or to run on a machine without a cvsadmin
group.  The long term fix might be to allow the name of the cvsadmin group
to be set in the CVSROOT/config file.

I used to think people were crazy to get tatoos.  Nowadays, I envy
them that clarity of thought.  There was at least one point in their lives
when they thought they knew what they were doing.  They could walk into a
tatoo parlor and say, "I want a big old pig, in red and black, with flames
shooting out of its nose!  And I want it right there!  That's who I am!"
