What do you get with a cvs status -v {somefile} from one of your 
previously imported files?  I'm pretty sure that Import was intended to 
be used as the initial addition mechanism when it is done, so having 
files there already might confuse it somewhat.  Check for capitalization 
issues.  You might also want to take this off to the side into a test 
repository to try things out to see how it works.  You can just copy the 
files from your main to the test repository without a problem.

I know this is offtopic, but I have been avoiding import for a bit now 
based on some previous issues (that have been fixed AFAIK), instead I 
add at the root of main and either branch to form my own vendor branch 
or maintain the vendor's code on main and I branch for my customized
