 [Kelly F. Hickel] Well, buckle up cowboy, it's going to be quite a

I'm beginning to suspect that 1.12.13 on windows doesn't really like
local repos.....

Can you try this with the downloaded windows binary and see if the same
thing happens to you???
1)  set cvsroot to some new directory that doesn't exist
2)  do "cvs init"
3)  create a directory with a single file in it (I used a .h file)
4)  do "cvs import" to import that into the repo
5)  do "cvs co " the directory name.

If I do the above, then after step 5 I have a directory with only a CVS
sub dir.  If I remove the directory and do step 5 with a 1.11 cvs
binary, I get a directory with the file in it.....

Am I missing something that was added to the feature release? Is it
supposed to work this way?
