File with $Id$ not available from loginfo

I am running a script from the "loginfo" admin script which parses the
checked in files for metadata. Normally, "loginfo" runs my script from a
temporary location containing a checked out copy of the file (e.g.
/tmp/serv1234) together with the accompanying "CVS" directory.
The problem I am having is that if the checked in file contains the "$Id$"
string, then the file does not appear in the directory where my script is
running, (i.e. the usual temporary location with its "CVS" directory). This
happens even if the file only contains "$Id$".

Why does this occur? Is it a bug?

Or is there another admin file I should be using to parse the committed

Much appreciated,
