Did you change the file before committing it?  CVS will not create a new
revision unless there are changes from the old one.

Sure.  You now have the file in your working area as branch 1.1.2, but
since there is no change from the original version, the only revision is
1.1.  This revision is on both the trunk and the branch right now.  That's
what it looks like to me.
