I have a script which I used many tiems in the past and does not work
anymore. I do not know at which release it started to break.

I try extracting a module with a given tag.
This module is built by including refes to specific files in the

If I just do a plain co without a tag. I get the module as expected.
If I put a tag, I get the following trace, which makes no sense to

[442]>cvs -t co -d . -r PFI_S_BUILD_ddw_132 pfiinst
 -> main loop with CVSROOT=:ntserver:netfinity:d:\project\CVSROOT
S-> do_module (pfiinst, Updating, , )
S-> do_module (pfiinst_a, Updating, , )
S-> do_module (pfiinst, Updating, ., )
S-> do_module (pfiinst_a, Updating, , )
S-> Create_Admin (., server, d:/project/CVSROOT/pfi/builds, , , 0, 0)
S-> unlink(./CVS/Tag)
 -> unlink(CVS/Tag)
 -> ParseInfo(d:/project/CVSROOT/CVSROOT/rcsinfo, pfi/builds, ALL)
S<- Create_Admin
cvs server: in directory .:
cvs [server aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first
cvs checkout: invalid data from cvs server
{11:32:45 //cauchy/fsd/project/Forem/PFIServer}

I have the same trace whether the directory I want to extract is
empty or not.

If I remove the -r PFI_S_BUILD_ddw_132 option, the command succeeds
and pulls the latest version....

What's wrong, what can I do?
