Wouldn't it have choked on more than just those 2 files then?

Also, from the 'cederqvist' CVS manual:

	A repository specified with -d will override the $CVSROOT environment
	variable. Once you've checked a working copy out from the repository, 
	it will remember where its repository is (the information is recorded
	in the `CVS/Root' file in the working copy). 

	The -d option and the `CVS/Root' file both override the $CVSROOT
	environment variable. If -d option differs from `CVS/Root', the former
	is used. Of course, for proper operation they should be two ways of
	referring to the same repository. 


PS- I guess we're getting OT here...
