Adding files in CVS is yet another story, so for simplicity let's avoid
mixing different issues.

This was a mistake. You should not delete subdirectories, -- just delete
all the regular files in them. [BTW, you have no way to check in
directories with CVS, so your "previously checked in" above makes no

If you do delete (sub)directory, CVS thinks you just don't like to see
it in this particular working tree (it is sometimes useful indeed). It
won't recognize deleted (sub)directories as a change. That's how things
are with CVS.
