First of all, the example test case I gave was just the minimum
required to invoke the problem, the real situation is when working
on a branch.

On a branch I add a file.

On an import the file also gets added.

Now I attempt to join all imports onto the branch.  It says "conflict -
has been added" and doesn't know what to do.  I have two versions
of the same file, and it doesn't know which one is correct.  But it
doesn't actually mark it as a conflict, so if I do a "cvs commit", it
doesn't produce an error.  Now it does.

BFN.  Paul.
