assertion failure in cvs admin command

With cvs 1.12.13 I get an assertion failure, like this:

$ cd /tmp
$ mkdir repo
$ cvs -d /tmp/repo init
$ mkdir contents
$ cd contents/
$ echo hi > foo
$ cvs -d /tmp/repo import -m "Import" contents release v1_0
$ cd ..
$ mkdir checkout
$ cd checkout
$ cvs -d /tmp/repo checkout contents
$ cd contents
$ cvs admin -ko CVS/Root
cvs admin: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs admin: nothing known about Root
cvs: parseinfo.c:44: Parse_Info: Assertion `repository' failed.
cvs [admin aborted]: received abort signal

Since this assertion can be triggered through idiotic use of 'cvs',
IMO it should be a normal fatal error message (for example, "cvs operation
attempted on a CVS infrastructure file"), rather than an abort.
