I don't know why I've never noticed this before, but I've just discovered that 'cvs update' won't update modules. We have a module that specifically excludes certain sub-directories, and a user wanted to use 'cvs update -d -P module' to ensure that he got any new directories in the sub-directories the module did check out. This didn't work, and of course updating the directory checks out the excluded stuff.

Why doesn't update use modules? Is this something that will be fixed in 1.12?
