Here's what I get from cvs -z3 update -d -P:
cvs update: in directory .:
cvs update: ignoring CVS/Root because it specifies a non-existent repository 
cvs update: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [update aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

Maybe this is because I never did the checkout: just downloaded the CVS 
snapshot and then updated it?

I don't know what "to take a micky" is, but sometimes there is no reply, even 
when I'm talking about serious things. Though, when I'm persistent and doing 
it in creative ways I receive the response (like above (of course, it's a 
joke, <joke>should have marked it up as was recommended by someone a while 
before in this list</joke> :))

I'm trying to solve it now, working out a patch. But if I'm stuck I'll beg for 
help 'cause *this* is a problem that stops my Cocoon 2.1 hosting project.
