The patch as written will stop most of the tests due to "? paul.txt"
showing up in the various directories when a checkout is being done.

All that said, I believe I have found the root-cause of the problem.

The problem appears to be that both ${CVS_DIRNAME}/CVS and
${CVS_DIRNAME}/modules exist after the parseroot test is run. 

On MacOS X, /tmp/cvs-sanity/cvsroot and /tmp/cvs-sanity/CVSROOT are the
same directory... so, later, when the checkout_repository test is run,
it has problems. The solution would seem to be to run the parseroot test
inside of a subdirectory.

I still need to finish running my regression tests before checkin, but
I think I have nailed this particular problem and I include the patch
after my .signature.

If it works and the all of the nightly sanity tests pass, maybe we
can get Derek to release a new version of the feature branch.

What I do not really understand is why this is not a problem in the
cvs-1-11-x-branch which seems to have the same parseroot test as the

        -- Mark

Log entry:

        * sanity.sh (parseroot): Perform test in a subdirectory.
        Fixes problem on case-insensitive systems where CVSROOT
        and cvsroot are effectively the same directory.
