I think "cvs log" will list all the files in a directory, including
deleted ones.

No, you've told CVS that you *have* revision 1.1 (in the Entry command),
but you've asked it to update that to the current revision, which is
deleted, so the server tells your client to delete the file.  You either
need to add a sticky tag (of 1.1) to your Entry line or add an explicit
"-r 1.1" to your update (you might want to add a "-p" as well, depending
on what you want to do).

The only client/server documentation is in the CVS source distribution
in doc/cvsclient.texi and the source code itself.  It may be helpful to
run the standard CVS client with $CVS_CLIENT_LOG set to log the commands
and responses.
