What you've learned the hard way is that CVS vendor support is pretty limited.  
But the good news is that it doesn't look like what you're trying to do is 
all that hard with normal CVS.  Instead of trying to "cvs import" each 
release, try just checking the updated code in to CVS.  Tag it where tags 
make sense, branch it where branches make sense, etc.

The one thing that the vendor support does that is interesting is helping you 
reconcile your changes to the vendor's code.  But you don't seem to need 
that, so the easiest answer may just be "don't use it."
