This is a client-side problem reproducable with versions 1.11.17, 1.11.21, 1.12.12, 1.12.13 among others.

Problems encountered on the server side after successful authentication will leave the user's sandbox in an inconsistent state; i.e., the directory will not be created in the repository, but the user's sandbox will have a populated CVS subdirectory in that directory.

One example of a server-side problem that triggers this bug is a file permissions issue which prevents the server from creating the directory in the repository.
