When you first checkout a working directory, CVS records the CVSROOT you
used in CVS/Root and uses that for all future operations in that
directory unless you specifically override it by using the -d global
option (that lets you work with multiple repositories without having to
change $CVSROOT all the time).  So, your problem appears to be that
what's recorded in CVS/Root is not correct.
