regression in cvs 1.11.1p1, "cvs checkout" command

Hi -

I have found what I believe to be a regression in 1.11.1p1 from 1.11.

The symptom is that the top level directories that are initially
checked out have a value of the actual directory name in  the CVS/Repository
meta-file instead of the constant "CVSROOT/Emptydir".  I assume that the
Emptydir value prevents "cvs update -d" from picking up top-level
directories that have been explicitly excluded by the initial checkout.

This causes the next "cvs update -d" to bring down all directories
at the same level that have been explicitly excluded by the initial checkout.

The behavior described above appears when cvs 1.11.1p1 is running in pserver
mode. cvs 1.11 and 1.10.8 pservers do not have this behavior.  All clients
(10.8, 1.11, and 1.11.1p1) have the same behavior when 1.11.1p1 is the server.

Please contact me if you need additional details.
