CVS never assumes you want to "move" the file.  In this case, it assumes
you want to remove a file from one place and add a new file in a different
place, because that's what you told it you want to do.

The only association made between the two files is in the user's mind and
maybe in comments stored in the source code or in the revision logs.  This
is true even if both actions are processed by the same commit.

To clarify the movement of files, when you remove a file X from module
/foo then add file X to module /bar CVS will assume you meant to move
the file provided you did not commit. In general I do not want CVS to
assume a relationship between a file X that was removed and a file X
that is later added in a new location. That assumption is only made when
CVS has a pending remove of a file with the same name. Is that correct?
