cvs-1.11.1p1: cvs [export aborted]: cannot export into a workingv

I just wanted to add to this thread from January that if the user's CVSROOT
is incorrectly set, this error will come up as well.
For example, if you are not in client-server mode and your
CVSROOT=/home/cvs/cvsroot/  (note the trailing '/') then everything will
work fine, with the exception of 'export'.  Changing back CVSROOT to the
proper CVSROOT=/home/cvs/cvsroot will correct the error.

I was thinking a sanity check could be added when parsing CVSROOT to check
for the extraneous trailing '/'?

With cvs 1.11.1p1 in "client-server-mode" (CVSROOT=:pserver:...) an
"export" always fails:

# cvs export -D 2002-02-02 aModule
   ==> cvs [export aborted]: cannot export into a working directory

The source of this error message is checkout.c, function build_one_dir:
in "client-server-mode" the "current working dir" is a temporary directory
on the "cvs-server". This directory contains also subdirectories named
"CVS". We solved the problem with the changes which can be found in
the accompanying file cvs-1.11.1p1.checkout.c.cdiff.

This should be regarded as a "hot fix". A closer review of function
build_one_dir of checkout.c might be necessary or suggestive.
