Setuid/gid Error in CVS

I am getting a peculiar problem with CVS.

In the output pane of WinCVS, the following message is coming whenever I
try to commit anything and the commit falls through.

cvs commit -m "Redundant test files have been removed from the CVS
repository.\nThese files had ..." data_section1.asm data_section2.asm
data_section4.asm (in directory D:\My Documents\Test\TestBase\)

Can't do setuid

cvs server: Pre-commit check failed

cvs [server aborted]: correct above errors first!

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 ***** 

I have got the scripts 'cvslog' and 'cvs_acls' in the repository of the
CVS server and these are being used for Acess control and formatting the
mail to be sent to the users.

The problem occured when I changed some settings and users in the
/etc/passwd file. I am using CVS as a pserver with the passwords coming
from the /etc/passwd file. So that this change made all the users UserID
change. Now when I tried to change the users in the repository also, I
had no problems initially, but after restarting the CVS services, I got
the problem.

When I changed the permissions of the 'cvs_acls' script from 2775 to
2777, the follwoing message is coming, and the loginfo script is not
sending the mails, but commits are going through:

Setuid/gid script is writable by world.

***** CVS exited normally with code 0 ***** 

Please help.
