Problem with cvs_acls script?

This could be something I've done wrong, but am at a loss as to figure
out a way around it. I'm running cvs 1.12.11 on Linux and have
recently added the cvs_acls script to my commitinfo file. The cvs_acls
script works properly, the problem appears to be the way it is invoked
by the line in my commitinfo, which is entered as described in the
documentation for cvs_acls.

ALL $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/cvs_acls -u $USER -f /var/log/cvscommit.restricted

When I attempt to commit a restricted file, I get stopped by the
cvs_acls script, but I also get the following warning...

address@hidden CVSROOT]$ cvs commit -m "Test commit" modules
cvs commit: warning: commitinfo line contains no format strings:
    "/cvsroot/CVSROOT/cvs_acls -u dmills -f /var/log/cvscommit.restricted"
Appending defaults (" %r/%p %s"), but please be aware that this usage is
**** Access denied: Insufficient authority for user: 'dmills' to
commit to 'CVSROOT'.
**** Contact the CVS Administrator if you think you require update
access to these directories or files.
**** File(s)/dir(s) restricted were:
cvs commit: Pre-commit check failed
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!

While not fatal, they are distracting and I'd like to get rid of them
if at all possible. Simply adding the parameters it speaks of does not
work and in fact breaks the cvs_acls script. Any and all suggestions
welcome, TIA!

It is better to seem a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
