Thanks to "ignacio" on IRC, we have done a little testing, but to no 

So, just to clarify...

Yes, I have an account (mjk)
Yes, my has been uploaded
Yes I have a ~/.ssh/config which looks like:

      Compression yes
      ForwardAgent no
      ForwardX11 no
      IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_dsa
      Protocol 2
      User mjk
      Cipher blowfish

[monkey at localhost ~]$ echo $CVSROOT
:ext:mjk at

How ever, I still get the same Permission denied error when I attempt to 
check anything out.
