It's a "feature"/artifact of how CVS modules work. The "winsup" is an
alias that checks out multiple modules, and this does not work with -d.
If you use an actual path instead of a module name (i.e. "co -d try
src/winsup") then you'll successfully get the winsup dir under try/ --
but this is probably not what you want, as it does not include the other
modules necessary to actually build Cygwin like toplevel, newlib,
config, libiberty, etc. (aka naked-winsup.)
