Did you try:

--moving the offending directory, 
--removing it's CVS directories,
--cvs up -d Tools

I'm guessing it's likely a case sensitivity problem or missing Module4\CVS
folder or similar.  Just let CVS straighten itself out.

Awhile ago I had thought you could just check out a module within another
sandbox (or perhaps move one in later after it was updated), but that didn't
work as I had expected when I tried it later.  Did you create this using a
non-standard method?
