Well, I gave it a shot and repeated everything without -n, but the behavior is the exact same. No difference, so my questions still stand. With one exception, though: I know now where the root checkout goes that "update ." causes (VSS.zip is a file that I have in the root of the repository): <P:\1\2>47>cvs up . cvs server: Updating . cvs server: Updating Documents cvs server: Updating Electronics ... cvs server: Updating Firmware cvs server: Updating Firmware/Board ... cvs server: Updating Manuals cvs server: Updating Manuals/RFPaddles cvs server: Updating Mechanics cvs server: Updating Parts cvs server: Updating .

This is at least surprising (to me), and I'm not sure it's working as intended. Gerhard
