Problem checking out alias module

I'm having trouble checking out an alias module. My command looks like this
  cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot co foo
where foo is defined in the modules file like this
  foo -a bar baz
  bar -d a/b a/b
  baz -d a/c a/c
What happens is that a copy of bar is checked out, but not baz. Instead, an error message
  cvs server: existing repository /cvsroot/a/b does not match /cvsroot/a/c
  cvs server: ignoring module baz
When I give the command as
    cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvsroot co bar baz
both modules are checked out just fine. Similarly, I can check out foo using WinCVS with no problem.
I have the same problem with Windows 2000 clients 1.10.5 and 1.11, but no problem with WinCVS 1.2. (The server is on a Linux system.)
How can I check out all the parts of foo in a script (which is why I'm want to use cvs directly, rather than WinCVS) without extracting its definition from the modules file?
