You should get three prompts, but only two of them would be for your
passphrase. The final prompt should be 

"Are you sure you want to release directory `...path-to-delete...': yes"

The first one does a 'cvs -n -q update' on the repository to see if
there are any changes in your tree before it releases it for you.

The second actually does the release for you if you answer 'yes' to
the release prompt.

You really should consider an upgrade or at least getting the latest
security patches for your cvs. However, it has the same behavior in the
current stable and feature releases of cvs of doing the 'cvs -nq update'
on your module before releasing it.
