I am trying to keep some hidden files for all our nodes in cvs and I've hit
a snag when checking them out.  

In the modules file I have tried (these are generic examples): 
        ENV -d ./ path/to/env/for/node
        ENV -d . path/to/env/for/node

BOTH work IFF I am on the machine where the repository resides.  It gives me
the files in the cwd and all is good.  But if I'm using pserver from a
different machine it fails with the following error.  Here's a specific
example (/export/cvsroot/env/locke exists and has one hidden file):

cvs co LOCKE_ENV
cvs server: existing repository /export/cvsroot does not match
cvs server: ignoring module LOCKE_ENV

We need to keep all the hidden files for each server in CVS and would like
to be able to have the files placed in the current directory wherever the
cvs command is run from.  We don't want to keep the entire directory's
contents just some files.  If I used ENV -d /home/sc path/to/env/for/node it
complains because /home/sc already exists (as it should).  

Is there a different or better way to do this so it works on all machines
not just the one where the repository lives or is what I want to do not
