If you're using a local repository, that should work.  If you're using
client/server CVS, you're screwed -- currently, the client and the
server each do their own ignore processing completely independently. 
That means that there's no way for a CVSROOT/cvsignore file to override
the client's default ignore processing.  Fixing this requires a
significant amount of redesign and coding; someone was working on it,
but I don't know what happened to that effort.
