checkout without modifying the Entries file

Hi All,

I've developed a release script which is version controlled, and which
checks out and compiles a particular version of the product:


cvs co proj
cd proj
release PROJ_V_1_1_1

which does:
cvs co -rPROJ_V_1_1_1 -d%TEMP%\proj_temp
cd %TEMP%\proj_temp

the problem is that since the checkout happened inside the project folder,
the temp directory gets added to the entries folder and cvs tries to update
the temp folder whenever the project folder gets updated.

i'd rather not use "cvs export" because i like the idea of the release
script updating version numbers based on the sticky tag.

is there a way to get around this apart from temporarily renaming the CVS
folder to pretend we're not in a checked out folder?
