Please study and understand what the 'cvs edit', 'cvs watch' and 'cvs
unedit' commands do, and what errors they will generate. They have nothing
at all to do with the error Maik posted.

In addition, if 'cvs watch' is on, then the correct thing for you to do is
to issue a 'cvs edit' command, not to change the permissions manually. That
is the whole point of these "side effects" you mentioned. Someone applied
cvs watch for a reason - do not subvert that reason by simply restoring read
access locally.
