The username 'cvsadmin' is special (it's like 'root' in unix or 'Administrator' in windows) and should not be used in the way you are trying to.

Create a non-admin user (eg: allcvsusers) and alias 'user' to that instead, if the problem still occurs please re-test with the 2.5.05 testing release and if the problem still exists create a ServerTraceFile and send just the relavent lines to the newsgroup and I'll look into it.
