No, CVS is telling *YOU* to move the old file out of the way so that it
can write the new file.  (You wouldn't want CVS to delete your files
without asking, would you?  After all, just because the file has the
same name that doesn't mean that it's an older version of the same file
-- it might be a newer version or even a completely different file!  You
should always have export create a brand new directory, not try to
update an existing directory.
