Checking out file to standard out

Using CVS 1.10.8, I am able to execute the following command:

        PROMPT> cvs -d /repos co -p -rHEAD test/test.txt
        Checking out test/test.txt
        RCS:  /repos/test/test.txt,v
        VERS: 1.1
        testing 1.2.3

Using CVS 1.11.2, and the same command, I get:

        PROMPT> cvs -d /repos co -p -rHEAD test/test.txt
        cvs checkout: in directory .:
        cvs [checkout aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout'

This is problematic, as it is the method that CVSWeb uses to display files.
I've looked to see if there is a solution on the web, but I've been unable
to find any references.

The one other difference worth noting is that the 1.11.2 server is on a
RedHat x86 linux box, while the 1.10.8 server is on a Solaris Sparc 2.7 box.
I've tried running the 1.11.2 client against the 1.10.8 server, and it
worked. However the 1.10.8 client against the 1.11.2 server fails as shown

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  Let me know if there is more
information that can help!

Thanks in advance!
