Your problem is that 'xide' is not a module, is a repository,
so the checkout command only has effect over modules.
In order your directory tree your repository should be cvsrepo
and 'xide' should be a module into this repository.

Solution: create in your client a directory 'xide' and then put
it into your repository with a command import (I recommend you
to create a file in this directory, for example 'dummy.txt' and then
runs the import). So you shouldn't have problems with your checkout.
