cannot open /nonexistant/.cvsignore: Permission denied

Hello Colleagues,

Its my second posting on the same issue.

I am relatively new to CVS and I would really appreciate if somebody could help me to understand the root cause of the problem.

I am using CVS version 1.11.17 for both client and server. My server is in Oregon. My client is in California. It runs on a PC under Windows XP using CYGWIN_NT-5.1 1.5.13(0.122/4/2) 2005-03-01 11:01.

CVS works fine for me.

However, every time I do a check in I get an additional error message:

cvs server: cannot open /nonexistant/.cvsignore: Permission denied

Every time I do a cvs update it works but every directory has an additional error message:

cvs update: cannot open /nonexistant/.cvsignore: Permission denied

I looked into my directories. File <.cvsignore> is present everywhere. Its permissions are writable for me.

As an experiment I focused on one directory and made <.cvsignore> file writable for everybody. It did not help.

I searched and have not found any directory with <nonexistant> name. I searched Internet and your archives. This message was not found.

I would really appreciate if anybody knows where these messages come from and why.

Thank you in advance.
