      Description

      The recent CVS plugin is confused about what to checkout and where:

      CVSROOT: :pserver:anonymous@arianne.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/arianne

      Remote Name: stendhal

      This configuration used to work in the past. But now it does a checkout of every module in the CVS-repository and it places this checkout above the workspace folder. As a result, the CVS changes are invisible because the last checkout below the workspace folder remains unchanged.

      Using different configurations of the Localname (empty or non empty) and Legacy Mode checkbox may result in only the right module to be checked out, but not into the workspace folder but a subfolder with the module name below the workspace folder. Again, this will result in the checkout being mostly invisible because an outdated version remains at the correct location.

      Furthermore deselecting the legacy mode checkbox is ignored. After saving the form and reopening the configuration form, the checkbox is selected again. It is possible to deselect it directly in config.xml, but this just causes the CVS plugin to again do a checkout of all modules to the parent folder of workspace.

      I tried several combinations of the configuration settings but I am still unable to find a workaround for this issue.

      Out jenkins server is publically available at http://stendhalgame.org/jenkins/job/stendhal_HEAD

            I also seem to be having this issue, simple jobs that listed multiple CVS module names for the checkout are now checking out the entire repo for the first module. Oddly enough the other modules seem to be correct.

            as a result, I believe all of our Jenkins jobs are now broken, with no workaround that I know of. kind of a problem, that......

            I have this issue as well. It occurred in all our jobs, and since we have a fairly large, old CVS server, the jenkins checkout filled the disk to capacity and locked the system.

            I've been implementing new Gradle builds in the system but the jobs affected are ones I've touched and ones I haven't. Nothing common seems to have changed, but this behavior occurred out of the blue.
