RE: cannot export from remote repo to absolute pathname

I have an exactly similar problem (CVS version 1.11, Solaris 2.6).
Looking at the code suggests that the working area check
(i.e., is there a CVS directory here) is done at the server
and not at the client.

Can this be correct?

Export really wants to create the top-level directory.  Try this
variant of your second case:

    cd /local
    rm -r dir
    cvs -d remotehost:/repo_dir export -d dir some_module/sub/tree

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
