There's precedent for that in the admin command: many of the options
that take a revision will allow a numeric revision for a single file but
not for multiple files.  The existing test is somewhat simple-minded,
though, and wouldn't work for export since export works on the
repository rather than a working directory.

It works for me.  You may want to try a manual ssh in verbose mode to
see what's going wrong:

        ssh -v address@hidden cvs server
