I primarily use CVS instead of CVSNT, however, I have some applications
TortoiseCVS is expecially useful.

In setting up some TortoiseCVS usage, I started to run into trouble doing
things that I do with my Linux CVS client.

To try to prove it was not a TortoiseCVS issue, I tried some commands using
the cvs.exe that is packed in with TortoiseCVS.  If I should be asking on
the TortoiseCVS list, please feel free to let me know, but this seems to
be a CVSNT question.

Using cvs, I can easily checkout a module to my current working directory

 $ cvs -d /home/eden/nsm-mnc co -d . GUI-VCL/release.txt
 U ./release.txt

It appears that CVSNT has trouble with this:

  H:\tmp>c:\progra~1\tortoi~1\cvs -d
":ssh:kbulgrien at arendi.vertexrsi.net:/home/ed
  en/nsm-mnc" co -d . GUI-VCL\release.txt
  U GUI-VCL/release.txt


Instead of checking out the module to the current working directory, it has
been checked out into a subdirectory.

What concept might I be missing?

  H:\tmp>c:\progra~1\tortoi~1\cvs --version
