cvs release and symbolic links

We have some source which requires symbolic links. As CVS does
not store symbolic links we have module checkout and
export scripts create them.

All this works fine, however when it comes to saying cvs release -d
we get errors like

bash> cvs release GATBASELINE 
? tmp
? msl
? log
? bin
? shlib
? config
? maps
? user
You have [0] altered files in this repository.
Are you sure you want to release (and delete) directory `GATBASELINE':
cvs release: deletion of directory GATBASELINE failed: Not a directory

and the working copy is only partially removed.

As far as I can tell there are no trigger scripts for cvs release.

Is there a way around this apart from manually removing the
links first?

Using cvs 1.10.8
