I've tried again .... same problem

I think my system is confused by the two seperate C1 repository paths:

	/home/cvspublic						anon CVS
	/home/cvs									CVS via SSH

I tried to have them "overlap" on my machine so I could use the
non-encrypted CVS for Checkout and Update and only use the (slower) secure
connection for Commit.

I guess this strategy will not work .... I've got to use only the secure
connection for everything otherwise I can't commit right?.
