is the new patch-aa really about the same source file, that the old
patch-aa changed? then

mv ../work/.new_patches/patch-aa patch-aa
rm patch-ab
cvs rm patch-ab
cvs commit

if the new patch-aa is about a different file, you should call it
patch-ac (or whichever name is unused...)


rm patch-aa patch-ab
cvs rm patch-aa patch-ab
cvs add patch-ac
cvs commit
