Really short answer: This is normal behavior.

Short answer: In general, revision numbers are internally used by
cvs.  Don't stress about them.  In particular, revision
(and everything on the 1.1.1 branch) has a special meaning
to cvs.  A revision 1.1 does exist in your files, and
it's the same as  You do not want to try
to change this.

Long answer: The 1.1.1 branch is used for the vendor branch
feature of cvs.  (Ever wondered why you need the mygroup and
start args to import?)  Please see the documentation on
vendor branches for more information.

(Hmmm... why is the short answer longer? :-)
