This means you did a "cvs up -r1.2" at some time in the past
and probably forgot you did that.  You need to rename (or
make a backup of it somehow) and refresh it with "cvs up -A"
(assuming you want the trunk).  Then make your changes again, or just
copy your backup on top of the new, and then commit.
