cvs update with flaws in recursive directory search

cvs update seems to have with flaws in recursive directory search.

Given the path ..../Libs/coin3D/include/...
If I execute 
/usr/bin/cvs -z3 update -d -A -P -D "2004-05-26 05:00 GMT"
with working dir 
..../Libs/coin3D the update succeeds without complains
I can do this repeatedly.
If I execute afterwards the same command with working dir
..../Libs the update fails with lots of messages like:
> C coin3D/include/Inventor/nodes/SoTranslation.h
> cvs update: move away coin3D/include/Inventor/nodes/SoTransparencyType.h;
> it is in the way

I get the same behavior with 
/usr/bin/cvs update -P -D "2004-05-26 05:00 GMT" 
which is the command WinCVS assembles when updating the same dir.

The directory has recently received its first set of updates, so many files
now have two versions ( and 1.2). I did not have this problem when
there was only a single version.

The problem only occurs on my linux box.  The windows box is fine.  In
windows I use WinCVS with the second syntax for the update command. No
matter where in the path I start the update, it succeeds.

As you are still reading :), here are the specifics of the linux

> uname -a
Linux bezier.cc.nih.gov 2.4.21-0.13mdkenterprise #1 SMP Fri Mar 14 14:40:17
EST 2003 i686 unknown unknown GNU/Linux

> cvs --version
Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.5 (client/server)

> cat CVS/Root

is there a way to fix this?

Any help is appreciated
