Deletion of files in a project

In the course of normal development, at least two entire directories of files 
were removed for a particular revision.

I find myself needing to go back to an earlier revision of the project before 
the deletion of these files.

I have two different situations on my hands now, both bad:
1. directory a/b is in the 'Attic' of a, but running either cvs checkout -r 
revold or cvs update -d -r revold does not bring these files into my working 

2. directory c/d is NOT in the 'Attic' of c.  Does this mean that they are 
lost and must be restored from backup?  How do I then reconcile the revisions 
so it looks like I want?

Situation 1 is distressing because I can't access the files or the directory 
of b.  What can I do about this?

Situation 2 is weirder and I don't know the exact commands that were used to 
delet these files.  Looking at CVSROOT/history only shows 'R' for those files 
with no removal of the directory.

Am I looking at CVS bugs?

Any help would be appreciated.
