Looking for Help with CVS 1.11.17

Fellow CVS Users,

I am attempting to upgrade cvs on my Solaris server from cvs 1.10 to cvs 
1.11.17.  The build was successful, and I am able to use cvs from that server 
without a problem. 

Unfortunately, if I try to connect to the server from my PC using a pserver 
connection in WinCVS, I am unable to perform a cvs login.  The error I am 
getting is:

cvs [login aborted]: setgid failed: Not owner

I have noticed in the source code that when trying to authenticate a pserver 
connection, it is trying to switch users to the cvs user requesting the login.  
My concern is that if I change ownership/permission of the cvs executable on 
the server so that it is run as root (which will allow the swith in user) that 
this may cause problems for users trying to access cvs from the server 
directly.  I do not see the "switch user" happening if you are not using a 
pserver connection.

Does anyone have any ideas/guidance on how to tackle this problem?

Thank you very much for your help -
