I guess you are right. Looking at some of the files it should have been
1.34-1.35->|mv|->1.1->1.2-> |mv| -> 1.3

I never liked the startover in versioning. Makes questions like which revision 
do you use quite pointless when you silently assume you are talking about a 
file in the same  CVS location. But if for some reason the file was moved and 
later moved back the one with the lower numer is actually newer. Worse if the 
startover happened multiple times.

I do not know nothing about concepts so my feeling might be stupid from a 
technical point of view.
