Hmm, I need some other information as well.  In addition to the above,
what is checkout-time for this particular file?  What time does
CVS/Entries contain, in plain text?  What modification time does the
shell report, and does it agree with CVS/Entries, file-attributes, and
checkout-time?  If CVS/Entries and the modification time as reported by
the shell agree, then somewhere an error must be introduced, so that the
above comparison fails.  We need to find out where that happens.

That's ok when you find the file.  It should be invoked when you do 
C-x v v, and if you set vc-[cvs-]stay-local to nil, then it should do an
actual "cvs status", and thus get the right state of the file, even if
it guessed wrong in vc-cvs-state-heuristic before.
