Thanks to Mark and Noel for your speedy and helpful responses.

There are two things in Noel's reply that I've responded to below:

I'm fairly new to CVS. We had an admin at the start (who got laid off - now I'm 
the admin) who settled on this access method. I'm
afraid I don't understand the question - can you elaborate: what method does 
"normal Unix logins" imply and does it imply something
different for the WinCVS clients than the Unix clients?

You hit the nail on the head here - cvs is still on probation and this group in 
particular is not happy about the move. I'll save
trying to get them to switch their development approach for a later time when 
they've been convinced that CVS can do ANYTHING (well
anything VSS could do anyway)! ;-)
