This may be the same error Janina reported a bit ago. I was attempting to
get the latest speakup from cvs:

cvs server: Updating speakup/diff-v25
cvs server: failed to create lock directory for
(/usr/src/CVS/speakup/diff-v25/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository
cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

Hope there is a simple fix... Chuck
