relative directories and diff

We have recently migrated from a locally mounted repository to 
pserver.  One of my developers has a script that takes a list of files 
and does cvs diff on them.  The files are specified in absolute terms 
so they now break for pserver.  So the following doesn't work:

cvs diff /tgi/data/stephen/enroute/api/src/enx_submit.c

but, inexplicably, the following does:

cd /
cvs diff ./tgi/data/stephen/enroute/api/src/enx_submit.c

I am at a loss to explain to him why the first one fails but the 
second one succeeds.
