I was able to reproduce your error. But, only when I had special characters in the -d directory name.

I recommend you avoid using checkout -d, for now. Just use mv(1) after you have successfully checked out a www/ tree.

so to successfully grab the cvs tree my command will be like this

(( cvs -d "anoncvs@anoncvs.de.openbsd.org:/cvs" "openbsd-www" www ))

is that correct?
