When you committed your changes, did you get a message that said
"Rebuilding administrative file database"?  If not, your changes weren't
applied to the active administrative files.  You can verify that by
checking the CVSROOT/modules file.  That is almost always caused by
using an incorrect $CVSROOT when checking out CVSROOT that is sufficient
to allow Windows to find the files but CVS doesn't recognize as being
CVSROOT.  The most common problem is using backslashes rather than
forward slashes; other problems are having a trailing slash or case

The simplest fix is to run "cvs init", which will rebuild the
administrative files.
