A simple question regarding watch and mqueue

I setup CVS from my regular account (not as root, does
it matter ? ) on a FreeBSD box. Everything seems to
work fine except the watch feature.

If I setup a watch on a file and another user tries to
edit it, he can't save it due to read-only permissions
on the file, which is expected. Now when he tries to

$ cvs edit myfile.txt

he gets

$ queuename: Cannot create "qfPAA20133" in
"/var/spool/mqueue" (euid=1015): Permission denied

The permissions on the directory are:

drwxr-xr-x  2 root  bin  512 Sep  6 13:37

I have uncommented the line in CVSROOT/notify and have
also created CVSROOT/users file.

What else am I missing ? It seems to me like its
trying to send the notification by writing directly to
the mqueue directory and not using sendmail/mail.

Sendmail is present but not running in daemon mode. I
get mail from my nightly backup scripts etc just fine
so there's no question that Sendmail/mail is working.

Thanks for any help in advance.
