They are 755 on the dirs, 644 on the checkout files, all root:wheel.
Seems OK to me.
Some more experimenting revealed that it depends on the cvsup mirror
I'm using. Using cvsup2.nl.freebsd.org I have the SetAttrs problem, but
when switching to cvsup.nl.freebsd.org all is fine. I tried switching a
couple of times and it seems consistent. I'm happy now :-), but still
wondering what could be "wrong" on the cvsup2 mirror. I have logs of the
cvsup sessions if anyone is interested.
