It is a permission problem on the server side, though it isn't
completely clear without more investigation what it is.

If you don't mind a little nitty-gritty, you can figure out exactly
what is happening by tracing your cvs pserver. What I do is open a
second port on the server as follows (you can add this to the end of
your /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver file--it will not affect cvspserver):

service cvspserver-trace
        disable         = no
        socket_type     = stream
        protocol        = tcp
        port            = 2402
        wait            = no
        user            = root
        passenv         =
        server          = /usr/bin/strace
        server_args     = -o /tmp/pserver.strace -f /usr/bin/cvs -f 
--allow-root=/cvsroot pserver

Substitute your path to cvs and the --allow-root(s) to match your
cvspserver config. 

Restart xinetd with the command

$ service xinetd restart

Check /var/log/messages for xinetd error messages to be sure there are
no errors in your config.

Now you can set CVSTRACE=:pserver:address@hidden:2402/cvsroot in
your client environment and

$ cvs -d $CVSTRACE login
$ cvs -d $CVSTRACE commit

(You will see a couple of interesting complaints from cvs regarding
unexpected responses from server--you can safely ignore those. That's
just strace making noise about child processes when it shouldn't.)

The trace of the most recent pserver session will be on the server in
file /tmp/pserver.strace. Take a look over that to see if you can
identify the point where the error occurs. The end of the file will
have a bunch of cleanup--removing tmp files and directories. The error
should be very shortly before that. If you're stumped, check with your
local linux guru, or send it my way and I'll try to decipher it.

good luck,
