-P and -d seem unlikely to change anything though it's a good idea to 
put them in ~/.cvsrc. -R seems redundant, cvs already recurses into 
subdirectories without it (unless you told it not to in ~/.cvsrc?).

However you may try -A which tell cvs to remove sticky tags. It's useful 
if you checked out a specific version of a file (e.g. using -r or -D) 
but now want to get the latest version.
