It looks to me like your script is broken.  The /./ in the middle of the
path although legal does nothing.  Why not fix the script?

Subject: Bug with paths containing '/./' in file paths?

With versions of CVS later than 1.11.14, when I run commands such as 

        cvs rlog -N Modules/SiteDefs/./mkHome/auto/Drun

I get error messages like 

   Assertion failed: strstr (repository, "/./") == NULL, file recurse.c,
line 642
   Error: cvs [rlog aborted]: received abort signal

However changing the path to remove the './' in the file path, eg. 

        cvs rlog -N Modules/SiteDefs/mkHome/auto/Drun

works fine. 

I would expect CVS to not choke on the file path with the './' in it because
it is a legal path. Unfortunately, these CVS commands are generated by
higher level scripts and I do not have direct control over the path syntax,
and so it would be nice to fix this behavior.

I do not see this problem with CVS 1.11.4. I checked out 1.11.17 and the
problem remains.
