Re: Problem with file permissions after checkout/update

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm using the cygwin cvs executable. But that
wasn't the problem.

The problem was that the user logged in for checkouts and updates during
the build was a generic user created only on the cvs server. The user
didn't exist on my local machine, since it was rebuilt when I came
onboard with this company.

So I had to 1) add the user as a local user on my machine, and 2) add
the user's passwd (from the local userid) to the cygwin etc/passwd file.

I'm currently looking at talking the boss into re-building the build
machine as a unix box, since the ant scripts are written so that only a
unix environment will build everything correctly (and yes, I'm working
on re-vamping this ant script set, cause it's a mess! <grin>) 

Gotta love it when you inherit someone else's problems!

Just so everyone knows how to fix it in the future!
