[Bug-cvs] CVS gets confused when checking out individual files in module

I have a module set up.. like so:
s0050cdc-cdcsa -d cdcsa web/s0050cdc/docs/cdcsa

The problem is.. we frequently check out small portions of this tree, via the
modules, to make life easier..  (typing in that huge path sucks, and there are
many more like it).  When we check out a file, in a subdirectory, under a
module..  we end up with all the Repository files containing "CVSROOT/Emptydir"
which makes comitting/adding files impossible.

The workaround we have started using, is to check out a file directly under the
module name, and then cvs update the file we really want, from within that
directory once the Repository file is set up correctly.

Below is a log of this event ocurring on one of our machines:

/home/colson/src> rm -rf cdcsa
/home/colson/src> cvs co s0050cdc-cdcsa/projects/index.html
U cdcsa/projects/index.html
/home/colson/src> more cdcsa/CVS/Repository       
/home/colson/src> echo $CVSROOT
/home/colson/src> rm -rf cdcsa
/home/colson/src> cvs co s0050cdc-cdcsa/index.html
U cdcsa/index.html
/home/colson/src> more cdcsa/CVS/Repository       

/home/colson/src> cvs -v
