Exactly.  When you update to (or checkout) a particular revision, you
can't commit because there's no place (in general) to put the new
revision.  For example, if you have 1.1 and 1.2 already exists, you
probably don't want to overwrite 1.2 (and what if there are more
revisions following 1.2?), nor do you want to change it retroactively,
and if CVS automatically made a branch, you wouldn't have any good way
to refer to it.  What you want to do is to use "update -A" to get rid of
the sticky tag and update to the head of the trunk, which in your case
is exactly the same revisions of the files as you already have.  Once
you do that, you'll be able to commit.
