I'm using 1.11.22:

$ cvs -version

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.22 (client/server)

The thing is that I only get this specific error on an import...  When I
try to do an "add" I get:

$ cvs add test.txt large.divx
cvs add: scheduling file `test.txt' for addition
cvs add: nothing known about large.divx
cvs add: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently

Well, of course it doesn't know about large.divx, I'm trying to add it!
Note that it does schedule test.txt for addition without a problem.

Why in the world would you store them in a source management system like

CVS should support large files if your OS supports them, and that
message implies that it does, so it seems like \something is going wrong
during configuration.  Please specify which version of CVS you are using
and post the configure output.
