That is what the "exclusive" mode is for. Each file can be "unreserved"
or "reserved" (or a half way variant). Set it as follows:
Cvs update -k+x file.ext
Cvs commit -f -m "change file mode" file.ext
The "default mode" for new files can be set in cvswrappers.

And that is one of the reasons CVSNT is not CVS, CVSNT supports many
additional features that CVS does not - including this one.
