This was an intentional change...  from src/ChangeLog:

2000-09-27  Larry Jones  <address@hidden>

        * commit.c (commit): Don't sleep before returning in server mode,
        just let the client do it.
        * update.c (do_update): Ditto.

        * sanity.sh (find_tool): Correct method of checking for GNU tools.

        * checkout.c (checkout_proc): Match up user directories with
        repository directories instead of using Emptydir.
        * sanity.sh (cvsadm, emptydir): Update to match.

I'm not sure what the compromise is.  Maybe someone has a suggestion?
