CVS Broken, Pallada 2178

I have a project in CVS.
I added several new packages/source files, but when created, chose not to add them in to CVS.

Now that I want to commit everything, I can add the files into CVS, but I cannot add the directories (they still show up orange/brown - and I know that CVS doesnt version control directories), and when I try and commit the entire project (right click ./src/packagename>CVS>Commit), nothing is listed for checkin, even though I have several files colored green, and 3 package directories colored orange/brown.

Linux, build 2178.

As a workaround, I commited a single source file in each new package/directory, and then when I went back to try and commit everything in the source tree, all the remaining new files were shown, and I was able to checkin.

I think that is a "feature" of CVS. Your editor was probably set to
prune empty directories.
