Hi Nuno,

I'm with you now.  You're right you can't checkout from two module folders
into the same folder like you're doing.
However, you can use the -N option to do what you're trying. You'll end up
with your folder structure in the sandbox but that's probably better. It
will help make it clear where the files came from. 

cvs -d $CVSROOT checkout -N -d c:\checkouts test_directory\test1\dummy.txt
cvs -d $CVSROOT checkout -N -d c:\checkouts

This will create a folder test_directory in c:\checkouts. Underneath
test_directory you'll have test1 and another_test folders. In those folders
will be the files.

I think that's as close as you're going to get to having muliple files from
the different modules in the same folder.
