BUG in 1.11: 'cvs co .' doesn't work in empty working directory with rem

Hello all,
I would like to warn of the bug appearing on Windows operating system in 1.11 
version of CVS executable. I am NOT able to checkout
whole contents of the remote repository using 'cvs -d 
:pserver:jkovalsky@localhost:D:\Tests\CVS\Repo1 co .' command if my working
directory is completely empty. This works on both Linux and Solaris but not 
under Windows :-( At the same time I have to say that it
works with 1.10.8 version of CVS on Windows. I always receive this message:

cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs [checkout aborted]: no repository

If I try to checkout from local repository it works well. ('cvs -d 
:local::D:\Tests\CVS\Repo1 co .')
Is there anybody who can fix it ? Or is this behaviour as designed and I have 
to use 1.10.8. instead ?
If you reply or can give me any info about it please CC: me because I haven't 
found any way how to subscribe to this bug-cvs@gnu.org
mailing list so far.
Thanks in advance, every information is greatly appreciated.
