[cvsnt] Drive-root (e.g., ":local:P:\") CVSROOT support.

I have a customer using a (I think twice-mapped) drive as his CVS root.
He's doing this:
Subst P: Y:\Dir1\Dir2
When he runs a tool of ours that hard-codes the cvs get, he gets the
cvs [checkout aborted]: Local access to network share not supported (Use
-N to override this error).
So, the questions are:
1) Did tricks like the above ever work?
2) When did it stop working?
3) Will setting CVSROOT=:local:Y:\Dir1\Dir2 work?
4) If the answer to #3 is "no", what version did it stop working (as
I've done #3 in the not-too-distant past)?
I seem to recall CVS not liking CVSROOT environment variables pointing
to the root of the drive, wanting to be at least one level down.
