As a temporary workaround, can your script check the
version of CVS, and use "sed" to patch itself
according to which version of cvs export will work

It's quite easy to convert "cvs export -r HEAD 
-d WSMDB -N Redist/MSDE2000" to "cvs export -r HEAD
-d WSMDB/Redist Redist/MSDE2000" using sed.  If I
knew more about how the two lines relate to each
other, I can tell you the sed expression.
