Could you post an example log?  It sounds like the files have been
partially resurrected -- they're no longer dead, but they're still
living in the Attic.

I think you mean CVS 1.11.1p1 and 1.11.2 -- there is no 1.12 yet.  The
major problem with 1.11.2 is that it doesn't work in server mode with
earlier clients when using compression.  If you're considering
upgrading, I would actually suggest the current development version
instead, or waiting for it to be blessed as 1.11.3 (which shouldn't take
too long).
