export or checkout of alias modules where the first item in the list is

Subject: export or checkout of alias modules where the first item in the list is an empty directory

imagine two directories "zero" and "one" in the repository, where "zero" is
empty and "one" contains files having the tag "mytag". If CVSROOT/modules
contains a line "all -a one zero" and you try "cvs export -r mytag all",
the corresponding files from "one" are exported, as expected. If instead
CVSROOT/modules contains "all -a zero one", i.e. the empty directory as the
first item, then the same export statement yields "cvs [export aborted]: no
such tag mytag". The same happens with "cvs checkout".

Observed in 1.11.17 when accessing the server via pserver.

I'm not sure whether this is a bug or a weird consequence of the documented
