Hi Matt

this is when issuing a cvs checkout to a working directory i.e. there
are other top-level dirs but none with the same name. I have a similar
situation in an account on the server and, as I say, a checkout there
works with no problems... The repository module was created with an
import and the checkout on linux is working fine.

I noticed some other people mentioning this problem with the 2k client
and someone even mentioned a patch but it wasn't visible in the google
groups page that I access this group from (this is why my reply has
taken a while also - google can take up to 9 hours to refelect a post
to a thread).

I would hugely appreciate some help in resolving this as I'm a bit
stuck as to how to work around it...
