The problem is as follows:

on CVS repository:

  dirX/ : exists but is empty
          (I simply haven't found a way to delete a CVS-directory

on working directory at my PC:
  dirX/ : exists, since it's generated by some package in the
 process, but there's not CVS entry/info.

In this situation, "cvs update -P" chokes on the fact that it insists
on the CVS/Entries file in dirX, which it can't find.
This results in the following warning/error message:

cvs update: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory

There seems to be nothing that can be done about that via regular
cvs commands. Is there?

Only when I empty dirX on my PC manually, the update goes just fine!?!
