The file structure is from a long living sandbox.


/module/CVS/Repository: module

/module/C/CVS/Repository: /<path-to-repo>/module/C

/module/C/part/CVS/Repository: module/C/part

So it looks like there is an ugly entry in  module/C/CVS/Repository,
but regular CVS and CVSNT do accept it.

No, not related to cvs rename.
I renamed it myself. So I get different branches of the same module in
the same sandbox. So the structure is like this:

module_base/ModuleA             Head
module_base/ModuleA_Branch_X    Branch for customer X
module_base/ModuleA_Branch_Y    Branch for customer Y

And I include the renamed directories in module_base/CVS/Entries.
