Two CVS questions

Our CVS repository lives on a Network Appliance F840 (running 6.1R1) and
we access it via NFS v2.  Occasionally we get errors like the following:

Checking in design_review.tex;
/sweng/CVS/src/doc/design_review.tex,v  <-- design_review.tex
new revision: 1.6; previous revision: 1.5
cvs [commit aborted]: cannot rename file
/sweng/CVS/src/doc/,design_review.tex, to
Permission denied

I say occasionally because the error is not reproducible.  The above
commit worked fine another system.  I'm almost sure this is a NetApp
problem because I can simulate the rename() problem using mv in the same

My questions are:

o Has anyone else seen these 'Permission denied' errors on any NFS
mounted repository?

o Has anyone changed the CVS rename() to something like copy/delete or
is there some other work-around?

Thanks much, Frank
