It is - my apologies. I swear I saw different behavior in the past
where only the `.' directory was checked.

You have multiple developers checking out code into the same
directory? That's completely nuts, but I guess it's par for this course.
Maybe you give them sudo access and a wrapper script and call it a

wonderful opportunity to do things properly as you're rebuilding from
the rubble of your current environment. It won't be fun, but it at
least offers a clean break.
