Hmm, really? So the 'src/org' directory is considered the same as the
'root' because one of the 'root' directories was put with 'modules' -d

The other thing is that 'old checkouts' seem to work better. So, I
searched for a difference and finally found one:

In the 'old checkout':

src/org$ cat CVS/Repository 

In the new one:

src/org$ cat CVS/Repository 

Which does seem to explain it indeed. So, how to check-out or change
modules that there appears CVSROOT/Emptydir in this case again?
