Skipping directories in "checkout"

While running "cvs -d <path-to-CVSROOT> get <some-project>", I get the
following message:

cvs checkout: Updating <some-project>
cvs checkout: cannot open directory <path-to-CVSROOT>/<some-project>: No
such file or directory
cvs checkout: skipping directory <some-project>

The reason CVS is unable to open the repository directories of this project
is that there is a network problem and the connection to the file server
(not CVS server!) in which the repository is located is unstable. The
question is, why does it skip the directory? Why does it not "die" with a
fatal error message? I run many such "cvs get" commands from a script, and
the fact that it skips the directories and returns with a good exit status
prevents the script from recognizing that it didn't manage to checkout the
