How do the recognized modules relate to the unrecognized ones? That is,
are the recognized ones all from the same repository? If I had to guess
(which I do since I don't know the internals...), I'd say it's likely in
the update code that processes a module, rewrites the entries, and moves
on -- but doesn't handle multiple roots well.
What does MainModule/CVS/Root have in it?
