Just to make sure I understand what you're saying, does the following
sequence of commands illustrate your problem:
cvs up -r branch
cvs add afile.txt
cvs up -r HEAD
[add/update files, but do not touch afile.txt]
[CVS indicates that afile.txt is being updated]
It's a long shot, but have you tried the `cvs update -A` option to
clear all sticky tags?
Does the same behaviour occur if you checkout the files into a new
working area ("sandbox")? Example:
cvs co yourmodule
cvs update -r branch
cvs update -r HEAD
Do the newer files still update each time?
