It shouldn't be fast (at least, it wasn't for me...). From hte log it looks
like it is incomplete.

We probably need to "cvs add" this directory (it was probably created after
the May 3rd backup).

That's fine. It means that the file doesn't exist in the repository (you added
it after the backup) but does exist on your developer machine. These files
should be "cvs add"ed back and committed.

That's odd. When I ran "cvs status" at the top-level, it seemed to examine
everything. Stupid idea: try again, after "cvs add"'ing back the directories
where it can't get a dir lock?
