error - "failed to create lock directory in repository"

We have a Mac OSX machine running cvs server.
When I try to commit a new file under test/testdir, I get the following

# Command Aborted.
# commit -m "test" test.rtf
# cvs server: failed to create lock directory in repository
# `/usr/local/cvsrepository/test/testdir': No such file or directory
# cvs server: lock failed - giving up
# cvs [server aborted]: lock failed - giving up

there is no file "testdir" in that directory, but there is one in the
main cvs repository directory.

Doing this test works fine from a PC works, but not from another mac
running as this user.

This user seems to have write access to the cvs repository and the
CVSROOT directory.

Any ideas?
