If memory services this means that the is a directory in the
repository that you do not have in your workfile. If you do
cvs-update, these directories will be created. Or cvs update -d from
the command line. 

This works unless you have empty directories in your
repository. pcl-cvs uses the -P option to prune empty directories from
your work files. Then you are stuffed. CVS just doesn't version
directories. Once you create them, they are there for ever. Unless you
delete them from the repository. If you do this though, you will loose
the "attic" which is where remove files are kept, which is fine,
unless you try and restore tagged versions which include files which
have been subsequently deleted. 

Ho hum.
