They certainly are...

Yes indeed. That's my problem...

Wasn't it the change from 1.11 to 1.11.1 that broke something in the
first place? At least it broke enough that I don't see any possibility
to upgrade our server to a newer version than 1.11... Or is there a
workaround for this? Basically all I need is a possibility that people
are still able to do a checkout or an update -d to an existing working
directory without the need for heavy modifications to our modules file.
