I am unable to do:  `cd somewhere ; cvs update`

because it doesn't like the cd, and possibly not the ;.  I also get a strange
blowup when I do:

			`cvs update somewhere`

where it says:  Protocol error:  '
Protocol error:  'Directory' missingE Protocol error:  'Directory' missingE 

and on and on...

Can you please suggest something.  I need to make this work, and I'm not
finding it obvious in any way.
