Hello,

I'm running this on a Sun Solaris 8 system.  Here is the results for ls
-lqR.  Because I did the checkout there is also a CVS directory.  Thanks
for letting me know that I should NEVER do a checkout over a directory that
I already have.

That's just an example of what a repository *might* look like; only the
CVSROOT directory of administrative files is required.

What platform is this on?  lstat() is a system routine that gets
information about a file -- it would appear that it doesn't work right
on your platform.  In fact, it looks like a lot of things don't work
right since it looks like CVS is trying to import files with no names.
It would be informative to see an ``ls -lqR'' of the directory you're
trying to import.

> $ cd ..
> $ cvs checkout junk

Never checkout over an existing directory (I presume ``junk'' is the
directory you just imported), especially one that you just imported.
Either rename the existing directory before doing the checkout, or use
the ``-d'' option to checkout to use a different name for the new
directory.
