Re: cvs 1.11.21-1 still experimental

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 ***

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.
