repo dirs not checked out

There seems to be some inconsistency in the way directories with no CVS
admin subdirectory are treated by different commands. This only seems to
show up when you have a non-cvs controlled directory with a name which
corresponds to a directory name in the repository.
For example, if the repository has top level directories named foo and blah,
and you:

$ cvs checkout foo
$ mkdir blah

cvs annotate, commit, diff, status, and update can quietly skip blah.

cvs log barfs on it.

$ cvs log .
cvs log: Logging blah
cvs log: in directory blah:
cvs [log aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first

Why should there be such a difference, especially between commands like
status and log? Is it a bug, and if so, which commands are behaving
