Error: cvs [server aborted]: cannot yet checkout to '.'

CVS has been working fine for me, with one exception. Whenever I try to perform
a "Rollback Local Changes" or checkout a revision of a file other than the
head, I just get the following error, and the rollback fails (although IDEA
still thinks the rollback was successful - the filename text turns black):

Error: cvs : cannot yet checkout to '.'

I'm using :ext to access our repository. This problem happens in both the
EAP versions and in 4.5.3. Is there a problem with my configuration, or is
this an IDEA bug?

I believe, this is a CVS server issue. Some old CVS server seem not be
able to check out to the local directory: 'cvs checkout -d .
directory/file' fails.

OK thanks for the pointer, I'll chase it up with our systems guys.
