Absolute pathnames don't, I found today, work with rsh client/server

Absolute pathnsmes to checkouts do seem to work for local repositories
(not using client/server.) Here, we ran local (accessing the repository
through NFS) for years, but switched to client/server with rsh

The only documentation I can find of this issue is todo #192, which
fails to mention the fact that absolute pathnames do work for local

Todo 192 makes it clear why it's unsafe to use absolute pathnames in
client/server, but I'm not sure why it's safe to use absolute pathnames
in local CVS (or whether it is, indeed, safe.)
