Unix CVS on a VFAT filesystem

I use CVS for development on my Linux laptop.

There's some software that I work on that is cross-platform.  I like
to keep the source for that software in a VFAT partition, so it's
accessible from both Linux and Windows.

However, when I do a CVS pull from Linux onto the VFAT filesystem, I
get tons of errors:

      cvs checkout: cannot change mode of 
EZFilter/edu/umich/eecs/wherefid/WheryQuery/ Operation 
not permitted

Those are tolerable, but when I try to do an update I see things like

    ? edu/umich/eecs/wherefid/WheryServer/cvs

and nothing seems to work right.

CVS works fine under Cygwin on the same filesystem, so it must know
how to operate correctly on a case-insensitive filesystem.

Does anybody have advice for making this work?
