Well, renaming ABC/ to abc/ was a deliberate decision as all directories
should be lowercase on our side. We did not know that CVS has such a
problem with this.

Removing ABC/ from the repository would break history and the ability to
build old versions, thus, it is out of question. Yes, we use co -P,
thus, I would have assumed that ABC/ is already gone before abc/ is
tried to be checked out. Anyway, this is not the case.

IMHO, this is a CVS bug, isn't it?

I'm sorry, this statement was not meant as it seems to be. It's my
fault, I should have formulated it more precisely.

Thus, I reformulate:

  IN THIS SITUATION [given above], if you want to use cvs, you HAVE to
  fiddle around with the Entries file [because CVS will not work
