"cvs update" recurses into each subdirectory listed in "CVS/Entries".
Within a subdirectory, it'll use the host and repository formed from
"CVS/{Root,Repository}". Simple. It's the initial checkout that's
magical (when it works!).

So, to fix up your checkout, all you have to do is rename
"src/sharesrc" to "src/share", and add `D/share////' to
"src/CVS/Entries", and so on.
