No. the directory is already there and has other (cvs controlled) files
A couple of others suggested that already as well.
I'm starting to wonder if it's a problem with cygwin and dos paths? Or
I suspect if I install SmartCVS or TortoiseCVS (both Windows programs),
I won't have any trouble. I was trying to avoid installing those since
we'll be switching to Perforce soon anyway.
I haven't had any trouble with cygwin's cvs until now. I guess this is
the first time I've needed to add a new file to the repository since
I've been here.

Do you want to add a file that's in a new directory? New = not
existing in cvs yet? If that's the case, add the directory first,
commit the change and then add the file.
