You're not. The reason you have file is because that is the 
head revision of the file. This is an internal notion within CVS that
you don't need to worry about.

Basically, if you import a file on a vendor branch, and the corresponding
file is not independently modified on the trunk, the new vendor branch 
version supersedes the trunk by becoming the new head.  If you make
a change and commit, it will go to the trunk.

E.g. in this case, the next version you commit will create version 1.2,

If you were on the vendor branch, you would have a sticky tag indicating so.
