Return status bug?

When I run a command similar to "cvs co dirA", the return status is 0.  When I 
run a command similar to "cvs co dirA dirB", the return status is 1.  Even 
though the command appeared to have succeeded (no error messages were printed) 
and all of the files were retrieved from the repository (on a remote server), 
the return status implies that an error occurred.  This contradicts what is 
stated in the CVS documentation.

On my system I am running CVS 1.11.22, and on the remote CVS server version 
1.11.2 is running.
I am using the tcsh shell, and I have the following environment variables set 


I am verifying the returned status with the following command:

$ echo $?

Can someone verify if what I am experiencing is indeed a bug, and if so, when 
will it be corrected.

Thank you.
