Yes, the foo.GIF,v file was deleted, this is why I am so confused as to why
it keeps coming back on a fresh checkout from a branch.  I just ran from the
top most directory of our repository a find . -name foo.GIF,v and found two
occurrences of this file. One in the ./dir/dir/dir/Attic/foo.GIF,v and the
other in ./CVS_HOME/dir/dir/dir/foo.GIF,v.  Could this be causing the
problem in the branch?  I'm not sure if the CVS_HOME directory is put there
by us or if it is a CVS directory.  Can these file be safely removed?

First off, CVS_HOME is not standard directory in a normal CVS repository as far as I know. Perhaps you aren't using CVS, but some CVS-like product? Others here will know better.

As for the Attic/foo.GIF,v file, yes, that's probably causing your problems. You should be able to safely remove it. (This is not meant to imply that it is safe to remove ,v files in the general case, only in this specific case.)

I'd experiment with the ,v file in the CVS_HOME directory by moving it somewhere out of the repository hierarchy, then see what happens when you check out a fresh working copy.
