Dear CVS community,

I reported:

I know now that CVS does the following when is sees a module definition
of the form "MNAME -d  wdpath/wd  DIRPATH/DIR":

  It uses "DIRPATH/DIR" as repository for "wdpath/wd" but
  *ALSO* "DIRPATH" as repository for "wdpath" and so on recursively.
  If "DIRPATH" becomes empty before "wdpath", it uses
  "." as repository.

Personally, I find this unintuitive.

Especially, in the light of the unexpected behaviour
of an updating checkout putting the complete cvs content in
a directory.

But, I recognize that I cannot change it without greater discussion.
The responsible code is in "checkout.c" near line 891ff.
