Hi all,
I've just upgraded from 1.11 to 1.11.22, and am running into some regressions/bugs.

In my CVSROOT/modules file, there are entries like this:
    mylib -a mylib_src mylib_inc
    mylib_src -d mylib
    mylib_inc -d include/mylib

After doing a "cvs checkout mylib", the resulting include/CVS/Repository is not correct (either in behaviour, nor according to the manual).
In section 2.3 ('Repository'), it states:
  "If the particular working directory does not correspond to a
   directory in the repository, then 'Repository' should contain
Unfortunately, this is not the case.
After upgrading to 1.11.22, include/CVS/Repository now contains ".".

Where this causes real problems is when a subsequent "cvs update -d" is done.  What happens now (with v1.11.22) is a copy of the entire cvs repository is checked out, under the 'include' directory.
[ Note that searching about this problem seems to indicate numerous people complaining about this problem, but with no resolution.

If I manually change include/CVS/Repository to be "CVSROOT/Emptydir" (as it's supposed to be), the a subsequent "cvs update -d" works as documented/expected.
