import and checkout to same directory

is it possible to make something like

$ cvs import -I <lotoffiles> PRO1 vendor release
$ cd ..
$ cvs co -d PROJECT PRO1
cvs checkout: existing repository /cygdrive/f/PROJECT does not match /cygdrive/f/CVS/PRO1
cvs checkout: ignoring module PRO1

This does actually not work. I cannot checkout to the directory where I have imported from. Normally I would prefer a solution where I rename the PROJECT directory after the import, then checkout and copy back the ignored files.

In this case this does not work because the cygwin bash which contains cvs has been installed to a subdir of PROJECT (*argh*). In that moment, where I rename PROJECT, cvs does not work any longer without changing a lot of environment variables on a productive system! Installing WinCVS or something else is also not allowed (because it's a productive system).

Any hints?


PS: No, it was not me who installed this system :-)
