Problem importing files using '-I !'

CVS version: 1.11.1p1
O/S: Linux 2.4.9 (Red Hat 7.1)

I'm unable to get the 'cvs import' command to check in
some source files in a vendor-supplied distribution.
The distribution contains some '.cvsignore' files
in the directory tree.  These '.cvsignore' files
(strangely, erroneously?) list some of the source files
(header files and directories) that are in the 
directory tree.

During the 'import', cvs is ignoring these files
(marked with 'I' in the first column) instead of checking
them into the CVS repository.  I was expecting to be
able to circumvent these '.cvsignore' files using
the '-I !' option of the 'cvs import' command:

 cvs -f import -I ! -ko -m"comment" \
> module-name vendor-tag release-tag

Can someone tell me:

  1. this is the wrong approach
  2. or, the command I supplied is incorrect
  3. or, 'cvs import' has a bug

Thanks in advance for your help.
