possible bug around export/checkout ...

If the repository is on another machine as the client machine 
(ie: CVSROOT=:pserver:<userid>@<host>:<cvsrootpath>),

Then an export to an explicit directory which contain more than one 
subdirectoryname failes:

example:   cvs export  -rHEAD -d ./tmp/cvscache <CVSMODULE>
        will fail with an erro message:
                - cannot change to tmp directory ...
        on the other hand:      cvs export -rHEAD -d ./tmp <CVSMODULE>
        will work as expected !

The problem does not occure if the CVSROOT is a local path !

The only workaround I found is to force a cd to ./tmp before exporting to the
current directory (-d . ) .
(Although this requires me to create 2 targets for an 'Ant' -build file to 
correctly export some files.)
