wincvs/samba problem

Hi Phil,

we recently set up cvs network using samba and win2k clients and we found
the problem was because when of different readonly flag behaviour in windows
and linux.

If I Matthew set something to readonly in linux, someone else isn't allowed
to turn it off, but in windows that's not the case. So files you commit to
the server can't be un-readonly'ed by someone else, hence the problem.

The proper solution is not to use it over a file system (we haven't done
this yet), but in the interim we set up a chron job which runs every minute
to turn off all the read only flags in the repository.

this has been working fine for us but YMMV.
