What I typically do after a cvs import for the purpose of establishing
initial repository content (i.e. it really isn't vendor code) is to
immediately check it out and then force a commit to the trunk.

I believe this would work around the problem you're seeing.

cvs co <module>
cvs commit -f -R -m "Force commit to trunk following import"

The expense of this is that you'll have revisions 1.1,, and 1.2,
which isn't all that bad for the convenience of it (compared to writing
a script to recursively add everything).
