$CVSROOT includes :local:

Hello!
CVS manual says:

`CVSROOT'
     This is the absolute path to the current CVS root directory.
     *Note Repository::, for a description of the various ways to
     specify this, but note that the internal variable contains just
     the directory and not any of the access method information.

However, I see in practice that it *does* include the access method!
Is this a bug in CVS or my mistake in useage?

Pls mail address@hidden since I am not on the mailing list.

Here is what I do 
>cvs -d :local:/cvsroot get code
I see

>cat code/CVS/Root
:local:/cvsroot

I have the following in commitinfo file:

^code  perl -i ${CVSROOT}/CVSROOT/code_commitinfo

And I get the following error:
Can't open perl script ":local:/cvsroot/CVSROOT/code_commitinfo": No such
file or directory

>cvs --version
