cvs v1.12 does not correctly handle "cvs co -d $DIR", which is shorthand
for "mkdir $DIR, cd $DIR, cvs co, cd -". So, use the latter form.

Also cvs v1.12 does not necessarily match cvs v1.11 in the format of
CVS/Entries, and this causes a false failure in subtest 14. Eliminate
checking CVS/Entries for this one test, but keep the test that the
created file exists and is checked out.

With these changes, all tests in t9200 pass on Cygwin using its default
cvs version 1.12.
