I thought "export" ridded the /CVS directory, hence CVS doesn't
know anything about what you exported.

When you first checkout a working directory, CVS records the CVSROOT you
used in CVS/Root and uses that for all future operations in that directory
unless you specifically override it by using the -d global option (that lets
you work with multiple repositories without having to change $CVSROOT all
the time).  So, your problem appears to be that what's recorded in CVS/Root
is not correct.
