pserver: export bug?

I'm using cvs-1.11.2-25 on RHEL3U4 and just switched to using the pserver
(cvs-1.11.1p1-8.7 on RH7.3).

I ran across the following anomaly with "cvs export".

If I export a file into a non-existent directory "cvs export" works as
I expect it to work; i.e. it creates the directory and copies the file into
without any CVS directory.  E.g.,

 $ cvs export -r HEAD -d foo   foobar/main.c
 $ ll foo
 total 4
 -rw-r--r--    1 ganek    user          1256 Mar 24 09:50 main.c

However, if the directory already exists, it creates the CVS directory
(or rather doesn't delete it since, I believe, that export simply does
 a checkout followed by a delete of CVS). E.g.

 $ cvs export -r HEAD -d foo   foobar/sub1.c
 $ ll foo
 total 96
 drwxr-xr-x    2 ganek    user          4096 Mar 24 10:20 CVS
 -rw-r--r--    1 ganek    user          1256 Mar 24 09:50 main.c
 -rw-r--r--    1 ganek    user         82432 Mar 24 10:19 sub1.c

Sort defeats the whole purpose of export. Obviously, I can do an "rm -rf CVS".

Is there a later version that fixes this?  Is the problem on the client side or
server side?
