Not at all. It is in fact how a file is
resurrected when it has been removed from the main
trunk at one point in time (at which point it is
also moved into the Attic as an optimization) and
later added back to the main trunk (at which point
it is moved up from the Attic).

I believe you are talking about the fact that
someone managed to have a live revision (where the
state was NOT 'dead') in the Attic of its
directory. That is/was an observed bug in that a
checkout of the main trunk would not find that
particular file correctly.

If your 1.6 revision is the most recent revision
on the trunk and the ,v file is in the Attic
subdirectory of its module, then that IS a
problem. Otherwise, there is nothing wrong.
