I also do this, and if I want to store the next release of the code I
first erase the sandbox using Windows Explorer (but keeping the CVS
Then I put all the files for the next release into the sandbox.
Then using WinCvs i locate the broken link files (which have been
removed in the next release) and do a cvs remove on them.
All files that are unknown to CVS are then cvs added.
Finally I do a cvs update then commit the new release. This way all
files will be handled by the system and I will get the new release
exactly as it was published.

Best regards,

Bo Berglund

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
else with more experience with it may be able to confirm (or correct)

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 :)
