Admin only affects the repository, it does not affect your working
directory.  And note that anyone else who had that revision checked out
would have the same problem but CVS doesn't have any way to know about
those files or fix them.  You really shouldn't be outdating revisions
anyway; if you want to discard a set of changes, back them out and

        cvs up -j1.7 -j1.6 foo
        cvs ci -m'back out changes from 1.7' foo
