Ah, now I think I got it, and it seems I was wrong.

I think this is how cvs import works. I normally don't use it, so someone
else with more experience with it may be able to confirm (or correct) this. 

You probably can fix your problem quite easily by avoiding cvs import. I
use the recursive add functions of WinCvs or TortoiseCVS in a situation
like this. I find them more predictable than import :)
