The message arises when the information in the CVS/Entries* file(s) have
an entry for 'filename' and 'filename is not in the current directory.

Filesystem corruption? Someone else removed the file? Some process
removed the file?

No, the repository state is unrelated to the state of the users local
CVS/* files.

You should be able to use the source to cvs to prove what happens. The
src/classify.c file in the Classify_File function is where the message
is generated. Look at the code yourself and see if you can find any
other way to get the message you have seen.
