I suspect it's a bug in CVS. The command "cvs co -d . modulename" also fails
on remote servers. I'm working on that one (in my spare time...).

Probably not. You can tell CVS not to read the .cvsrc file by providing the
global -f flag. The command would be:

cvs -f update .

I doubt it will make a difference, though.

Er, why are you specifying -D in .cvsrc? I find it unlikely that you will
always want to set your sticky tags to a specific date.
