You are running the server as user1 rather than as root, so it is not
able to become user2.  You either need to run the server as root, use
the :ext: access method rather than :pserver:, or map user2 to user1 in
the CVSROOT/passwd file (see the manual for details:
<>).  If you use the
last method, you won't be able to use file permissions to control access
to individual directories (since both users will actually be running as
user1), you will only be able to control access to the repository as a
whole (using the CVSROOT/readers and/or CVSROOT/writers files).
