cvs-1.11.15: "cvs co modulename/dir_does_not_exist" creates work tree

Subject: cvs-1.11.15: "cvs co modulename/dir_does_not_exist" creates work tree
Date: Wed, 20 Oct 2004 15:36:00 +0200 (MEST)

Program:        cvs
Version:        1.11.15

Host:           all

Synopsis:       "cvs co modulename/dir_does_not_exist" creates work tree

Description:
    When "cvs co modulename/dir_does_not_exist" is called, with
"modulename" being an entry in CVSROOT/modules and
"dir_does_not_exist" is a non-existing directory, a work-directory
called "module" is created.

On the other hand, if "modulename" is not in CVSROOT/modules, an error
message is prined:

cvs server: cannot find module `modulename/dir_does_not_exist' - ignored
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot expand modules

and no work tree is created.  Is this inconsistent behaviour intended?

Reproduce with:
    see above
