Looks as though you did, judging by this log excerpt:

Probably something like:
        cvs update -p -r1.9 >

I believe you can also do something like:
        cvs update -j1.10 -j1.9
        cvs commit

i.e. the first -j names the dead revision; the second names its

Yup.  Or here's a kludgy way do it yourself, without repo access:
        # Delete the file again; this will fix up the inconsistency
        # in the repo
        cvs update      # Force it back into the sandbox
        cvs rm -f
        cvs commit                      # Should work, even though the ,v
                                        # file isn't where it it's
                                        # supposed to be.
        # At this point, the ,v file is still in the Attic, but with a
        # "dead" revision.  Thus the following will work.
        # Try again to resurrect the file; this should do what the
        # previous attempt didn't: move the ,v file out of the Attic.
        cvs update -j1.15 -j1.14        # See below
        cvs commit

For the second update, the -j values should be the "dead" revision you
just created and its *predecessor*, respectively.

Good luck.
