You are both right...  Tortoise version 1.3.1 ("unstable") does indeed add
the directory properly, so it was simply because it was a root folder. And
thanks Bo for the clarification on WinCVS, although I dont understand why it
makes you follow all those steps simply to "Add to Source Control"... Would
you ever want to import, but not local checkout? Why not combine them like
Tortoise, or at least make it an option?

This is true, but the "Make New Module" command in TortoiseCVS does
magic to checkout the files again in-place.

Which version of TortoiseCVS are you using? Older versions could not handle
a folder under CVS in the root of a drive.

(you should follow-up to tortoisecvs-users at lists.sourceforge.net)
