Yep, that's what's going on, all right.  The reason they don't show up
in a checkout or update is that those commands (and most others) don't
look in the Attic unless you specify an explicit revision or date
(that's the whole point of having the Attic -- most commands never need
to look at those files).  I believe this can happen when you resurrect a
file and don't commit it right away; in some cases (and I don't remember
exactly what they are), CVS forgets that it needs to move the file out
of the Attic on commit.  The easiest way to fix it is to either move the
files out of the Attic by hand.
