This is not the intended behavior and doesn't happen for me, so we'll
need more information to figure what is the problem.

Could you show the output of `ls -l' for the file under CVS
control that VC incorrectly opens as read-only ?
[I understand that you may not have `ls' on your NT system, in which
case, you can just open a dired buffer in the directory and show us
the relevant line.]
Also does the modeline say "CVS:XXX" or "CVS-XXX" ?

Finally, in the buffer where you see the problem could you do:

    M-: (user-login-name) RET
    M-: (user-login-name (nth 2 (file-attributes buffer-file-name))) RET

and tell us what the two commands returned (it should be the same).
