It's not the things you don't know that get you into trouble, it's the
things you know that just aren't so.  I'm not questioning the current
state of your repository, but I find your description of how it got into
that state quite unlikely.

The most likely source of your problem is that you merged into a working
directory but didn't commit the resulting files.  If you do "cvs log" on
one of the affected files and post the result, we can tell for sure
what's going on.  Oh, and you might mention what release(s) of CVS
you're using.
