While browsing one of our repositories, I came across a part of the tree that 
did not belong where it was. It appeared as if one of the developers had done 
an import into the tree from her work area (the top of the checkin was CVS_WORK 
which was a locally-defined convention.) I noticed the file ownership and 
contacted the developer, who denied even needing to work in this part of the 

How would it be possible for the files to be marked as owned by that user if 
she did not check them in? Is it possible we cannot trust the CVS server to 
write the files properly? It would not be prudent for another developer to use 
someone else's login account, but would that be possible?

CVS server is 1.11.9  on Solaris and users are all using WinCVS 1.13.10 pserver
