You're not supposed to remove directories.  CVS only manages files, not
directories -- if those directories ever contained files, deleting them
would prevent CVS from ever being able to check out those (now deleted)
files.  The usual advice is to use the -P flag on checkout and update
(you can put it in your ~/.cvsrc file so you don't have to remember to
type it all the time) to delete them from your working directory.
