Nope, this is specifically about adding a new file to CVS from within

Which version of Emacs were you trying this on?

doesn't reveal (to me) anything to indicate that this particular
behavior would have been consciously changed, but some of the changes
are rather wide-reaching (in particular, the introduction of
vc-cvs-command to replace the generic vc-do-command), so perhaps it
changed just as a side effect of something else.

For quick experimentation, you don't really need to import.

 vnix$ mkdir /tmp/cvsroot
 vnix$ cvs -d /tmp/cvsroot init
 vnix$ mkdir /tmp/cvsroot/vc-mode-test
 vnix$ cvs -d /tmp/cvsroot co vc-mode-test
 vnix$ emacs vc-mode-test/foo.txt

Yes, this is correct. Just to be candid, which version of CVS are you
using? I'm currently on 1.12.9 but this has been happening since I was
using Emacs 20 (or was it even 19.35?) and CVS 1.11.

If this were a real .signature, it would suck less.  Well, maybe not.
