No, I didn't want to blame anything. I was just trying to fix this before
leaving as I had to pick up one of my sons. And no, this didn't show up in any
of my tests as obviously the files were rewritten by cvs when committed. After
using git so much the fault was in front of my keyboard because I simply forgot
about this feature.

Is there anything in cvs comparable to the git amend option?
