On IRC I got a hint what _may_ be wrong:
-- snip --
*smontagu* Also note that users must have write access to the
*smontagu* `CVSROOT/val-tags' file.  CVS uses it to keep track of what
tags are
*smontagu* valid tag names (it is sometimes updated when tags are used,
as well as
*smontagu* when they are created).
-- snip --
Can you check that, please ?
