The CVS/Root files in your sandbox(en) need to be updated to reflect the
new repository path. The following will generate a script to do the

        find . -type d -name CVS \
        |awk '{print "echo $CVSROOT >\"" $1 "/Root\""}'

You can tweak the output if need be, then just run the script from the
top of a sandbox. $CVSROOT needs to be set to the new location. Use at
your own risk!
