Subversion vs CVS

I thought it would be a good idea to convert to svn, so I got svn set up,
removed all the cvs files and folders from my latest working copy, and
imported the working copy into the svn repository. Then I did a checkout to
my new working directory and realized there were some local files which had
not been part of the cvs repository and I didn't want them to be in the svn
repository, so used "svn rm url" to remove them.

Now those files have been removed from the repository, but when I try to do
an svn commit, it complains like so,

Sending        config.php
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File not found: transaction 'e', path '/cdctrac/config.php'

Does this mean I can't have nonrepository files in my working directory?
When you commit in CVS it ignores files which are not in the repository, so
you can have experimental files or helper files which are never committed
but which coexist with the cvs files. Is the behavior not the same for
