OK, so does this mean that there is something changing the permissions locally?
If so, do you think it is related to my local version of CVS somehow or should
I be looking somewhere else for the problem? Since Markus also reported the
same problem, I am tempted to think it has something to do with CVS, but I have
no idea how CVS could change the permissions especially with your comment

Thank you for your help.
