That makes some sense, since otherwise the code that figures out which 
directory to
checkout into may be run twice...  it leaves a directory to cleanup in the 
case though.

What about trying the parent dir too (as determined using the last_component
function) if errno after the chdir is ENOEXIST or whatever...

If both chdirs fail, then safe_location can too since we know that CVS will only
build one level if directories due to a -d switch.

I was about to code this, but if you have it in hand, I'll let you...
