If there was a "cvs watch on" applying to those files, wouldn't they
be checked out or updated read-only?  If this was being done on these
files, then presumably "cvs edit" would be the way to make them
writable, not "chmod +w".

If "cvs edit" is being used, then it should be used; otherwise, try
"cvs watch off" at top level.
