I would like to see this resolved first, if the maintainer is listening:
Oh. That. Totally forgot about that. Sorry.
I've had no blinding flashes of insight, either. I *do* know that it's
not blindly adding a "." to the end of the tempdir in order to defeat
some name-hiding thing in cygwin. Here's the actually command list
being sent back-n-forth (by inserting printfs in the command loop):
*** up here server_temp_dir=/tmp/cvs-serv2116 ***
*** and /tmp/cvs-serv2116 DOES get created ***

*** down here we try to mkdir_p /tmp/cvs-serv2116/. ***
I believe it is because the "Directory" value is being appended to
server_temp_dir, which would be fine if Directory were anything but '.'
Basically we just need to check if Directory = '.' and skip the
dir-creation step. But I don't know where that's happening.
I don't have a similar level of debug output from a (working) 1.11.17
build -- that's as far as I've gotten.
