We are using cvs 1.11.22, the latest version. It can work fine with Eclipse
Please try to update your configure.

Note that both versions are rather old and full of bugs. I would highly
recommend to update to a more recent 1.11.x version. (Although, the
problems you are having are not related to this).

Well, I do not agree with the Eclipse developments, so.... ;)

Well, I either misunderstood you in the first place, or you were not

You CANNOT check in deleted folders. This is not even possible with SVN,

What you have checked in is the removed xfolder/xfile:

If you would use "cvs up -d" afterwards, the folder would reappear.
Anyway, since Eclipse seems to use "-P" additionally, xfolder/ will be
deleted immediately.

Indeed, THIS is not possible. xfolder is in the repository, thus, CVS
will handle it, regardless of what you do.

CVS cannot ignore the directory xfolder/. .cvsignore is used for files
and directories which are not under the control of CVS. Since xfolder/
was checked in, it is under the control of CVS. You cannot change this.

Your best bet might be: Disregard using "-P" on update and checkout, and
put a .cvsignore file INTO xfolder/.
