I'm having a problem checking out a module to a local repository.  The command used is "cvs checkout -d E:\ TATS".  I'm trying to checkout the module to the windows E:\ drive without the module name "TATS" as the top folder.  It creates the top-level files successfully, but as soon as it gets to the first folder it starts recursing on the E:\ drive.  The status messages look something like

U E:/white_no.gif
U E:/white_up.gif
cvs checkout: Updating E:/E:
cvs checkout: Updating E:/E:/E:
cvs checkout: Updating E:/E:/E:/E:
cvs checkout: Updating E:/E:/E:/E:/E:
cvs checkout: Updating E:/E:/E:/E:/E:/E:
...on and on...

Everything works fine using "cvs checkout TATS", however it creates all the files under E:\TATS instead of E:\.

Any ideas?
