No, it's not. But in your last message you seemed rather upbeat about finding the path of the workspace having been squirreled away. I'm just pointing out that you can't hope for a solution to this problem unless the workspace and repository can both agree on an identity for the workspace. Comparing the present working directory of the client with a stored workspace path will likely not satisfy this requirement. Storing the present working directory of the client in the workspace at the time it was created, and using that stored value, would satisfy the requirement.

True, but is that significantly different than the following scenarios:

cvs co project
cd project
cvs edit file
cd ..
mv project proj2

cvs co project
cd project
cvs edit file
cd ..
rm -rf project

Or am I missing something?
