Re: cvs export bug.

Okay, I upgraded my box with the older cvs to the latest version and that
doesn't give the problem.  I installed cvs on another "cleanish" box and
that also doesn't give the problem.  So something is messed up on my dev

On that box all I do to recreate is:
     - create a directory
     - dump a text file in it
     - do the cvs import in that directory
     - goto another directory (like /tmp)
     - do a cvs export -D today repository (or any other variation of the
export with a -d /somedir -N or -r HEAD or -r othertag -f)
     - see the error message:  cvs [export aborted]: cannot export into
working directory

The problem seems local to the box so sorry for the bug report.  I'm off to
hunt a needle in a haystack...

Thanks for taking the trouble to look into it.

I don't seem to be able to recreate this problem.  Can you give me an
exact sequence of steps (starting with creating a new repository) to
cause it?
