protocol error: `..' has too many ..

I am getting a strange error when sitting in once directory and doing a diff in a directory above.  Example below;


[cookie:/home/test/temp/cmtest/test2 >] cvs diff ../test3/foo.c

protocol error: `../test3' has too many ..


If I change my directory to /home/test/cmtest/test3 then cvs diff works.


As far as I can tell this is a problem that is shown in a linux system.  The above command works on a bsdi and solaris system.


CVS version on BSDI and Solaris systems is 1.10, and on linux system it is 1.112.


Is this an expected behavior for CVS? Or is this a bug?
