move away ... it is in the way

Why would I get the below error message?

   cvs checkout: move away dir/file; it is in the way

Even checking the same file out twice does not cause this error.  However,
if you look at the examples below (note they all contain 2 dirs) on what
works on what does not work you can see a pattern.  First, it only happens
with the -D switch!  Second, specifying two directries with the second
directory being a subdirectory of the first.

The examples below are a simplified example of my modules file.  I tracked
it down this far, but to me it looks like a bug?

Could someone try the below examples on a newer version of CVS (my Linux
server is 2-3 years old).  Thanks.

These commands fail:
cvs co -D "2001-09-13 00:30" code/optimization/productOpt
cvs co -D "2001-09-13 00:30" code/build code/build/config/buildList.txt
cvs co -D "2001-09-13 00:30" code/build code/build/config
cvs co -D "2001-09-13" code/build code/build/config/buildList.txt

These commands work:
cvs co -D "2001-09-13 00:30" code/build code/build/sbc.bat
cvs co code/build code/build/config/buildList.txt

I am using WinCVS with a Linux CVS server.
