[Bioperl-l] biosql-schema CVS problems

I'm having problems checking out biosql-schema from CVS using my developer
account on the new CVS server (dev.open-bio.org).  I'm currently using
TortoiseCVS and I am able to checkout all other packages w/o problems (core,
run, db, etc), so I know everything is set up correctly and works.  When I
try 'biosql-schema' or 'schema' I get this:

In C:\Perl\src\bioperl: "C:\Program Files\TortoiseCVS\cvs.exe" "-q" "--lf"
"checkout" "-P" "schema"
CVSROOT=:ext:cjfields at dev.open-bio.org:/home/repository/bioperl

cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for
(/home/repository/bioperl/biosql-schema/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs checkout: failed to obtain dir lock in repository
cvs [checkout aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
cvs.exe checkout: in directory .:
cvs.exe checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or

Error, CVS operation failed

This didn't happen with the old cvs server.  Any ideas?
