It happens to a lot of files in vendor release B and not for the locally added
files. I know that they were not removed in release B. 

cvs co -jA -jB cvsdir
My understanding is that this command checks out the files (the head of 1.x or and merges them with vendor release B in my local working area. Hence,
after the co, my local area would have (1.x/  X, right? 

Also, if the above is right, it shouldn't matter in which directory I'm doing 
above command.

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.
