Hello there,
here's  my  problem:  defined an "ampersand module"
in  $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/modules and got a problem when
checking out the module using checkout options "-d" 
and "-d" and want to know whether this is a (known)
bug or a feature. That's what I have and what I did
 $uname -a 
 SunOS intra-dev 5.6 Generic_105181-05 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2

 $cvs --v
 Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.10.7 (client/server)

My repository contains the directories "mod1" and "mod2".
Want to checkout them both with a symbolic name. There-
fore I added the line "am &mod1 mod2" to the modules 

 $ cat $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/modules
 am &mod1 &mod2

That's pretty fine since 
 $ rm -rf am
 $ cvs co am
 $ ls am
 mod1 mod2

does exactly what I want. Even better, 

 $ rm -rf xx
 $ cvs co -d xx am
 $ ls xx
 mod1 mod2 

let's me checkout the modules in another directory. That's
wonderful, wow!

BUT, trying also option -n to prevent any additional checkout
script from beeing triggered behaves unexpected:

 $ rm -rf *
 $ cvs co -n -d xx am
 $ ls
 mod1 mod2

The modules are checked out in the working directory and not
as beeing told in the subdirectory "xx". 

BUT-BUT, on the other side,

 $ rm -rf *
 $ cvs co -n -d xx mod1 mod2
 $ ls 

does the right thing.

Ok, I'm much too stupid to understand why 'cvs' behave in 
this way, therefore  I  ask you, what's going on here. If 
this is a bug, I'm willing to fix it.
