This does appear to be the case. I had this precise problem before, and have 
since updated my src tree from scratch with the following command:

cvs -d ":pserver:sudog@localhost:/cvsroot" -z 9 update -d -P
(it's an ssh tunnel or I'd just use the directory location)

The "chown" src directories appear in two locations:

:douglas:16:50:35 /usr/src# find . -type d -name "*chown*" -print

... whereas the ./sbin/chown is empty.

I've deleted it but now have been unsuccessful trying to find what precisely I 
did to bring it in to begin with.

Perhaps something in my history missed out the -P, since I like to !cvs to 
update stuff.

thanks for the note, it'll help considerably I think.
