Extra weirdness.

This local check of the remote pathname seems to be done only for

The literal command:

% cvs -t -d :ext:cvsuser@xxxxxx.yyy.net:/home/user checkout something

hangs on our affected systems (where "cd /home/user" hangs)


% cvs -t -d :ext:user@xxxxxx.yyy.net:/home/user update 

goes ahead and aborts because xxxxxx.yyy.net is an unknown host.
