Sounds like Fisheye is broken - the e-mail integration included in CVSNT
doesn't have that problem.

You are probably better off using ACLmode=normal (in CVSROOT/config) so
that by default users do not have access so you do not need all the
'nowrite' stuff.

Please try that and use the latest 2.5.04 RC for both clients and

If the problem still exists then we can look into it.
