Indeed.  If you look for @ignore_files in the script, you'll see a list
of non-RCS files that are expected in the repository -- any non-RCS file
that doesn't match one of those patterns is reported.  Although the
other administrative files are listed, verifymsg, config, and history
were overlooked (presumably the author's repository was created with an
older version of CVS that didn't create those files) and should just be
added.  The .#* files are backup files -- feel free to delete them from
your repostory and/or add them to @ignore_files.
