Do I have a problem with my CVS/Entries file?

To create a workspace, I set my CVSROOT and create a new directory. Then I cd into that directory and say

cvs co .

Here's the result:

555 > ls
CVS                   GuardiumCustom       SharedMemoryDriver  platform
CVSROOT               LocalHostMonitorAPI  diagnostic          src
GUARDIUM_RELEASE_TAG  Makefile             docs                testing
GuardSoftwareTap      Makefile.subdirs     install
556 >

Now the fun begins:

556 > cat CVS/Entries
/GUARDIUM_RELEASE_TAG/1.2/Fri Jul 22 16:31:39 2005//
/Makefile/1.6/Fri Aug  5 16:54:48 2005//
/Makefile.subdirs/1.1/Fri May  6 21:47:51 2005//
557 >

Note that the Entries file is missing src, LocalHostMonitorAPI, CVSROOT and diagnostic.

Now, everytime I say update I get this at the beginning:

? LocalHostMonitorAPI
? diagnostic
? src

I have to know to update those four things explicitly.

Also, if it helps, I am running cvs-1.11.19-9 on the client side and cvs-1.11.5 on the server side. I have no errors serverside in syslog.

Can someone explain this? Is it a bug? Is there a workaround (besides editing the Entries file manually)?
