Standard CVS has no such message.

That implies that you have a commitinfo script that's failing -- my
guess is that the above error message is comming from the script.

That implies that the script is setuid, probably to the wrong UID now
that you've changed them.  (And note that a world-writable setuid script
is a gaping security hole.)
