Because CVS stores the CVSROOT used for the original checkout of a
working directory (in CVS/Root) and uses it for all subsequent
operations in that directory (unless overridden with the global -d
option on the command line).  That makes life much more convenient for
people who work with multiple repositories since they only have to
specify the root for the initial checkout, not every single CVS
operation.  You can either change CVS/Root by hand or use the script in
the contrib directory to do it.
