No such repository


I have a Debian server running Sarge running MySQL and CVS mainly.  All was working correctly until an upgrade this morning.

Now when I try and log into CVS I get an error saying "no such repository" - this is when I try and login locally or remotely.  I've checked again the permissions on the repository and they look OK, and the groups/owners are correct as well.  Also in the syslog I get the following error:-  cvs-pserver[709]: connect from ( and then "cvs: login refused for /data/cvs_home/repository_root".

This is really causing me major problems as I have a numbers of users who cannot check code out at the moment.

CVS version is  1.12.9 (client/server).

Thanks for your help.
