If you commited a CVS remove to revision 1.1 on the main trunk, then
you get a revision 1.2 whose state is 'dead'. You can update your
working copy to revision 1.1 to get the file back. 

To restore the file, you can do something like:

        cvs update -p -r 1.1 > file
        cvs add file
        cvs commit
