I have reported it as bug #559.  If you need any more help or info, let me 
know. It seems that even when commenting out the offending options, 
wincvs still complains, although mkdir returns the proper error codes.

I had to downgrade to a 2.2.x version to get stuff working again (there 
were also some problems overwriting existing files on a network share, 
haven't looked into that yet), but I can do a bit more testing in the weekend 
if you have any pointer where to look for these issues.
