You should probably run "cvs update" instead of a second "checkout".
Having said this, my (old) cvs manpage says:

              Running  `cvs  checkout'  on  a  directory that was
              already built by a prior checkout is  also  permit-
              ted,  and  has the same effect as specifying the -d
              option to the update command described below.

so I'd say you found a bug.
