permissions question

Hello all:

I am managing an unusual situation where we need to have several
developers working on the same directory tree.  Essentially I am using
CVS as a logging mechanism, and to track revisions, but the software
in question will only work in one place (don't ask).

The problem is that each time I check something in, CVS changes the
file's permissions to 755, so that my teammates can't change it.
How do you control this behavior?

I believe this behavior is also responsible for occasional "up-to-date
check failed" messages.  Since there is only one developer tree, there
are no other versions of these files to change.  These messages, I
assume, are also caused by an owner or permission mismatch.

Any advice?

Many thanks,
