Even better, use

  ^bbb\(/\|$\) script1 .....
  ^aaa\(/\|$\) script2 .....

The '\(/\|$\)' is the CVS regex incantation to match "'/' or the end of the
line" and should guarantee you match a complete directory name and not a
substring of another directory.  I'll probably check a few examples into the
manual soon.  I think CVS uses the same regex mumbo jumbo sed uses if you want a
man page.
