This indicates that you have enabled the notoriously buggy
PreservePermissions code.  Since that has been disabled in recent
releases of CVS, you must either be using a very old release of CVS or
you have gone out of your way to enable it.  I strongly suggest
upgrading to the current release of CVS or at least disabling it in your
CVSROOT/config file.  When PreservePermissions is enabled, CVS stores
the permissions along with each revision.  In this case, it is telling
you that revision had different permissions than revision 1.1.
