I just noticed you could also use the following sequence to reproduce
(avoiding the virtual modules):

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/cvsgui co cvsgui/Macros
cd cvsgui\Macros
cvs up -rExp-MacroWork-BRANCH
cd ..\..
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/cvsgui co cvsgui/Macros

I'm also getting the "move away" messages when checking out the
following module (just as an example), which is also not virtual:

cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/jcl co jcl
cvs -d:pserver:anonymous at cvs.sf.net:/cvsroot/jcl co jcl

So, looks like it's not the virtual modules that are causing these

Hope this helps.
