This is standard behaviour for CVS. It actually creates both version 1.1
and of the files (which happen to be identical). The
version is on the "vendor branch".

The revision numbers should not really be taken as having much of a
"meaning". I find that just letting CVS do it's own thing with the
version numbers works. If you want to assign any meaningful labels to
the version numbers, tags are the way to go.

If you reall, reall, really want the version numbers to start with 1.1
and never want to see an version, they you may be better off
performing an *empty* import: 
  - Create a new directory 
  - import the newly created (and still empty) directory.
  - check out the newly created project somewhere
  - copy your existing files into the new sandbox
  - add all your new directories and files
  - cvs commit.

This should give you version 1.1 of everything.
