Subject: Bug: "cvs.exe co -l -d . ." results in error:"cannot open CVS/Entries for reading"

Hi,

Server: i386 Linux RedHat 7.3, cvs 2.12.10
Client: i386 Windows XP SP1 or SP2, cvs.exe 2.12.11 or 2.12.9 or 2.12.10 or
2.11.2.
CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/users/000_600/cvs_repository

For some historical reasons my repository contains files in the repository
root. To obtain these files I called:

cvs co -l -d . .


This works fine on Linux with cvs 1.12.10 ( server and client ).
This works well too on Windows NT/XP with the CVSNT - Client "cvs.exe"
from CVSNT version 2.0.51d and CVSNT version 2.0.58d.

But this does not work neither with the cvs.exe 1.12.9, nor 1.12.10, nor
1.12.11,
nor 1.11.20 (downloaded from
https://ccvs.cvshome.org/servlets/ProjectDocumentList?folderID=83&expandFold
er=83&folderID=80 )

(But it works - of course - if there is a CVS directory with correct 
Entries, Root, and Repository files in it.)

Paradoxically following calls DO work even in an empty directory:

cvs co -l -d workspace .

  and

cvs co -l -d . subdir

It is clear, that there is no reason, that "cvs co -l -d . ." does NOT work
(only on
WINNT !), therefore it's clearly a bug.

That is the normal output of the command ( cvs.exe 1.11.20 ):
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

G:\temp\workspace>cvs.exe co -l -d .  .
cvs.exe checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or
directory

cvs.exe [checkout aborted]: no repository
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
---

That is the output with trace on ( cvs.exe 1.11.20 ):
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
