In such cases I just do a "cvs import -I!".  In fact, I just do a
normal import but if I notice files being ignored, I repeat the
import command with the "-I!" option.  More precisely,

    cvs import -mblabla dir VENDOR tagname 2> ../err | tee ../out
    less ../err
    less ../out

and if I see "I" annotations in the 'out' file,

    cvs import -I! <rest of command exactly as before>

The double-import doesnt hurt, the files that have already
been imported are recognized as unchanged and do not create
a new repository version.  The files that had been ignored
on the first attempt get pulled in, with the same tags
as the first batch.
