    cvs will not overwrite it if it is not already managed by cvs.
    Either the directory does not have a CVS/ subdirectory, or the
    CVS/Entries file does not list the file/dir in question (that is how
    cvs knows that a file or directory is under cvs management).

    This type of situation usually occurs when you CP things manually
    or if you PATCH something which creates a new file or directory
    rather then just modifying existing files.


the things you wrote seem to imply that there is a src directory before the failure (which isn't because I moved the one from the first checkout). Or I didn't understand you. :)

The sequence of events is:

1) cvs checkout src    <=== Successful
2) mv src src.old
3) cvs checkout src    <=== Fails

We could reproduce the problem on a friend's machine as well. Both systems were built in the last two days.
