WinCVS seems unable to checkout stuff from cvs into a directory which
already exists.

In the following example c:\development\components\live already exists on
my NT disk.

cvs checkout -P development/components/live (in directory C:\)
cvs checkout: in directory development:
cvs checkout: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or
cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot open CVS/Entries.Static: No such file or

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

However, if I specify the target directory as follows

cvs checkout -P development/components/live (in directory C:
cvs server: Updating development/components/live
U development/components/live/ACSTypes.pas
U development/components/live/ATAbout.dfm

Loads more stuff

*****CVS exited normally with code 0*****

but now my components are in  c:
\development\components\live\development\components\live  which is not
where I want them.

Am I doing anything wrong ?
