No, my primary heartache is the intended location of the lock file in

use /var/lock for that so I can use pserver to prevent unlogged write
access to the repository.

Which is a real problem, because I have CVS server configured to put log
files in /var/log/cvs, not /usr/local/cvsroot.

Can anyone give me insight into what we're doing wrong here?

Q1) is $CVSROOT ~=/usr/local/cvsroot/ ?
Yes, it is exactly /usr/local/cvsroot.

Q2) did you edit $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/config {to mod the LockDir variable} in
 or did you do a `cvs -d $CVSROOT checkout CVSROOT` and
edit it in the checked out location then do a checkin? Note that except for
the password file, the second method (`cvs checkout CVSROOT`) is the way all
the files in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT should be edited.
Yes, I did the latter.

Q3) did you do a checkin in $CHECKOUTPATH/CVSROOT?
I don't understand this question.
Q4) was this helpful at all?

Absolutely, except Q4.

Bear in mind we're using WinCVS client on Windows, we're not using Xnix clients.
