cvs co -d oddities in client/server mode

We have come across a remarkable behaviour of 'cvs checkout' with the -d
option. The version we use is 1.10.3 both on the client and the server, 
running on a RedHat 6.1 based x86 system.

Both with the pserver and the kserver, the following checkouts fail:

[pcchxx] ~/work % ls -ld twolevels Planning absolute
drwxr-xr-x   2 helge    zp           2048 Aug 29 22:49 Planning
drwxr-xr-x   2 helge    zp           2048 Aug 29 23:07 absolute
drwxr-xr-x   2 helge    zp           2048 Aug 29 23:07 twolevels
[pcchxx] ~/work % cvs co -d twolevels/Planning offline/Planning
cvs server: cannot chdir to twolevels: No such file or directory
cvs server: ignoring module offline/Planning
[pcchxx] ~/work % (cd Planning; cvs co -d . offline/Planning)
cvs server: existing repository /atlascvs does not match 
/atlascvs/offline/Planning
cvs server: ignoring module offline/Planning
[pcchxx] ~/work % cvs co -d $HOME/work/offline/Planning offline/Planning
cvs [server aborted]: absolute pathname 
`/afs/cern.ch/user/h/helge/work/offline/Planning' illegal for server

All these checkouts work fine with a local repository.

Is this a bug or a feature?

Cheers,

Helge
