CVS permission problem on NFS partition

Sorry if this is a repost, I had some problems with my mail account
yesterday and did not see my mail on the list, so here it comes again.
I apologize if this is a bit offtopic as it is not entirely
FreeBSD-specific, but I did not know where to post otherwise. If anybody
knows a list more suitable for this question, please tell me.
I am running a FreeBSD 5.0 p7 release box with a more or less GENERIC
kernel (took out scsi and ipv6) During booting, the system mounts three
nfs partitions from the my local fileserver (which happens to be a
debian 3.0 box, 2.4.18 kernel).
The corresponding fstab entries are:
gate.lindenstrasse:/home/silk/lan /home/silk/lan nfs rw,-r=1024 0 0
gate.lindenstrasse:/var/www/public /home/silk/www nfs rw,-r=1024 0 0
gate.lindenstrasse:/samba/public /home/silk/public nfs rw,-r=1024 0 0
Since I am not running nis, I synchronized the uid's for my working
account on both machines manually and changed ownership to the
directories in question accordingly.
So far, so good, no problem.
Now I checked out a working copy of a cvs project on my FreeBSD box in
/home/silk/lan (on of the nfs partitions mounted during bootup)
The checkout works (I get the complete cvs tree of the project in
question), but I get the following error a couple of time:
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot open herbivore/CVS: Permission denied
I double-checked the permissions on herbivore/CVS, and I should be able
to do whatever I want.
Performing the checkout under /home/silk works without the error, so my
guess is that this is a nfs related thing, but since I am able to read,
write and execute normally on the partition in question apart from cvs,
I am a bit confused here.
If more information is needed I will be happy to provide it.
