This does not require the blunt axe approach.  Admin should be avoided
at all costs.

Raj, if you need to restrict the order of commits then you need to
implement a "reserved" CM process.  Mark the files as requiring
exclusive locks (cvs update -k+x;cvs commit -f -m "") to avoid this
problem in future.

To "undo" a revision use the commit id with the update command, or if it
is a single file then use update and a revision number, eg:
cvs up -j 1.1 Test.ear
cvs commit -m "revert to version 1.1"

Then make your changes and commit.  So you end up with:
1.1 - original version
1.2 - incorrectly committed
1.3 - same as 1.1
1.4 - Raj's changes
1.5 - other changes
