Hi Pierre,

I have a computer from wich all files commited to the linux/pserver CVS

doesn't have the problem). We use CVSNT 2.0.51d.
I didn't even think it was possible to have the executable bit set from a
Windows client.

Could you answer these questions:
- Was the file newly created on the windows machine?
- What is the windows CVSROOT (ssh/pserver...)?
- If you manually re-set the perms (from unix), do the symptoms re-occurr when windows checks a file in (i.e clean checkout, modify, checkin)?
- What are the permissions as returned by 'ls -l' of the CVSROOT/module_path/parent_directory_of_the_file and the file itself?

Note: regarding windows file perms on unix - it is possible for windows to 'set permissions' on unix filesystems.  Technically speaking, it really isn't windows doing this but the FS itself or some middleware.  For example: a file created from windows on a shared NFS will create the file with a dummy user (some number), group (pswin) and perms set to 777.  At least that is how our system is set up.



Please help. Thanks,
