[vox-tech] cvs: directory CVS specified in argument

ok, i'm not exactly a cvs newbie, but i'm not really proficient at it

cvs gives a warning i don't understand:

   p@satan% cvs commit
   cvs commit: Examining .
   cvs commit: Examining images
   cvs commit: warning: directory CVS specified in argument
   cvs commit: but CVS uses CVS for its own purposes; skipping CVS directory
   cvs commit: Examining other
   cvs commit: Examining src.peter

i understand what the warning is saying, but i'm clueless as to why cvs
is saying it.  none of the "CVS/" directories have a directory named
"CVS".  ie: there are no directories that look like CVS/CVS.

why does cvs think i'm trying to commit "CVS" and how do i get it to not
think i'm trying to commit "CVS"?
