i think i have experienced this once, with:
cd /usr/src; cvs update -d -P
i think your guess is correct, cvs is doing something funkey with
CVS/Root and some other files, and tries to update src/share
with basesrc/share, not sharesrc/share.
after that, i almost always use something like below.
cvs update -d -P -r netbsd-1-5 [A-Z]*
foreach i ([a-z]*)
(cd $i; cvs update -d -P -r netbsd-1-5)
