Yesterday, I checked out a copy of NetBSD 1.6's sources through CVS, like
    cvs -d co -rnetbsd-1-6 src

And today I've tried to update it. My surprise has been to see three new
directories inside usr.sbin: mscdlabel, tpctl and wsmoused... but as I see
these do not have any tag nor branch (so they belong to current). So I've
gone into usr.sbin and did: cvs update. Same results, the directories are
there. (Note that all CVS control directories contain a Tag file saying
it's netbsd-1-6. But well, I tried another thing: went into the usr.sbin
directory and issued: cvs update -rnetbsd-1-6. Now, those directories

Everything else went fine... What has happened?
