I've never seen CVS do this. Are you perhaps using WinCVS?

Check in all of them. CVS will actually only work on those that have
changed. As you yourself note.

Again, I think you must be using WinCVS. Just do an update on the directory.

But your primary problem is that you're storing non-source files in CVS,
which is *wrong*. Bad. Unwise. Pretty much any other negative adjective
you care to think of. Don't do it, and you'll be happier.
