[-]An error on 'cvs add' implies that 'cvs co' worked. The user probably doesn't

But they do. Other files in the same directory are updated, added, 
and committed fine. Or at least had been before this break down.

[-]It sounds like the $CVSROOT environment variable uses the :ext: method on the
[-]local machine, when it usually only contains the repository path. If local
[-]access doesn't work, it's almost certainly a permissions problem.

$CVSROOT in this case has only the path, no :ext: method to be found. 
The $CSVROOT is NFS exported to every machine, so there is never a
need for remote access in these cases (internal LAN). Which is why the
above makes no sense to me.

And maybe I'm mistaken, but why is there no documentation of a "cvs
server" command?

[-]to help you (and everyone else) figure it out.

Last resort.
