I installed 1.11.1p1 yesterday on Solaris 2.6 (compiled with GCC).  
Only config  change is to set LockDir to /var/tmp/mumble. 

Mostly works, however a colleague did this :-

1.10         cvs co -rmybranch module
1.10         cvs commit 
1.11.1p1     cvs tag whatever
             cd $HOME
             mkdir tmp
             cd tmp
1.11.1p1     cvs export -rwhatever module

In other words, trying to make an export of a tag which is on his
branch.  This resultd in an assertion failure in lock.c, wprded
roughly assert(0 == strncmp(blah->directory, directory,..).

Workaround is to use cvs-1.10 to perform the export. 

The exact information is at work and I'll work to get a reproducible
test case for this today.

I've reported this to bug-cvs, but has anyone seen this problem
