This is an unfortunate result of the way client/server CVS works.  In
general, exactly the same command gets run on the server in a temporary
directory as what you typed.  In this case, although you created the
neptune/monitor directory on the client, no one has created it in the
server's temporary directory, so the command fails when the server tries
to run it.  Fixing it is extremely difficult, but there is a reasonably
simple workaround:

        cd neptune/monitor
        /usr/local/bin/cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/cvsroot co -d . 
        cd ../..
