pcl-cvs in general shows the results of the last operation you've
made. If it was cvs-update, then it shows the changed files. Use
cvs-status to see status of all the files, though in ~10 years of
programming using pcl-cvs, I never got a desire to use it. In fact it's
much more convenient that pcl-cvs usually doesn't show thousands of
files I don't care about.

Can't help with that. I personally use add-change-log-entry, and it does
work for me.
