On Mac OS X if I do :

cvs co -r"MyBranch" -D "today" Module                                           
it starts checking out files. The "Module" directory is created and
the complete hierarchy of files is checked out.

Also, this message :

Either these options are not mutually exclusive, or one of these options
is being ignored (in which case it should probably tell me which one it is
checking out and which one it is ignoring).  

Her's my CVS version :

[ttyp5]cunnto2:/Volumes/Builds/JavaSources/[11:52am]: cvs --version
