File Permissions of new files.

I've some trouble getting the file permissions right on my CVS repository. I've searched and read a lot but don't get it.

That's my situation:
I've a CVS repository on a SuSE Linux machine. It's accessed by the users through their ssh accounts (most users use Eclipse).

Now, I want to ensure, that the file in my repository can only be read by people of a certain group. Hence, I don't want any rights for "the world".

I've read, that CVS sets the files' right according to the parent directory's rights. Thats my directory:

drwxrwx--- 2 myuser cvsgroup 4096 2008-04-30 12:59 test

But my checked in files have these rights:
-r--r--r-- 1 myuser cvsgroup  223 2008-04-30 12:59 test.txt,v
I would have expected (and wanted) -r--r-----.

The umask is set to 0007. I don't have set an CVSUMASK environment variable - but I've tested it, too.

How can I ensure, that my files don't get World-Rights?

Thanks & kind regards
