If the "cvs rm file1" command succeeds, it needs me to commit. If I figure out that I shouldn't rm the file1, can I cancel the previously issued command?
My concern is that if I leave the wrong command hanging there, in the future I may issue a "cvs commit" to confirm other commands and CVS will accidentally remove file1.

That depends on your definition of "work". :-)
CVS only manages files, not directories, so you *can't* remove a
directory in CVS. What the above command will do is try to remove all
the files in that directory, which will fail if there are any that still
exist in your working directory (unless you use the "-f" flag to
the working file as well).
I keep forgetting that rules are only for little nice people. -- Calvin
