That should only happen for files that were present in vendor release A
that are not present in vendor release B.  If you're getting that for
your added files, you must have accidentally added them to the vendor
branch rather than adding them on the trunk.  It would be informative to
see the results of "cvs log" or at least "cvs status -v" on one of the
affected files.
