Hmmm....  How about adding '-N' to the "rdiff" options.....

              In directory comparison, if a file is found in only
              one directory, treat it as present but empty in the
              other directory.

that should show you your changes (though I'm unsure how well 'HEAD'
works with "cvs rdiff").
