When you have a checked out directory, CVS uses the root specification
in CVS/Root (which is the root you specified when you checked out the
directory) instead of using $CVSROOT; this makes it much easier for
people to use multiple repositories.  You can override that by using the
-d global option on the command line, but for permanent changes, you
need to either correct the CVS/Root file or delete the directory and
check it out again using the correct root.

by golly, I'm going to be ready for it! -- Calvin
