Most any CVS command will work on a deleted file provided you give it an
explicit revision number that you want it to work on.  The most common
commands for deleted files are probably update -p and log.

That's the way CVS works; internal times are always in UTC (the
politically correct version of GMT).

On the contrary, daylight saving time *has* affected your system -- EST
is -5 from UTC, EDT (which is what we're in currently) is -4 from UTC.
