The reason is that after checking out kdepim the permissions of (and all other files in kdepim/) are 0444, i. e. is write-protected. now simply copies to and then tries to append a line. 
Obviously this fails because of the missing write permissions. I don't 
know why in CVS doesn't have write permissions but a 
'chmod u+w' directly after the 'cp' in kde-common/admin/ fixes this problem.
