Hi: I sent this a week ago with no response. I'm a newbie to the list and not sure how to interpret silence. I saw a couple of resends that got response, so I figured waiting a week would be a good amount of time to wait. Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks. Mike

Hi: I'm using cvs v1.11.5 and I've noticed some odd behaviour. If I execute the incantation:

cvs export -D now -d . a/b/somefile

on a local repository, I get the expected version of somefile in the directory I executed from. However, if I have CVS_RSH=ssh and CVSROOT set to point at the exact same repository, but prefixed with :ext:address@hidden: and work from another machine, the above incantation fails with:

[export aborted]: cannot export into a working directory.

If I replace the . with a new directory name, it works fine, as does a checkout.

I found something about a bug close to this at but I'm not using pserver and I was under the impression that export did not ever create the CVS admin directory, so I'm a bit stumped.

Can someone explain what could be happening, if its a bug, and, if so, is it fixed in a later version or still outstanding.

Thanks in advance for any insight provided.. Mike
