What you did wrong is you tried to import a directory into a branch.
So the directory was created only for branch and would not appear in
HEAD since you added it only to branch.

The correct order:
1. Checkout modules HEAD.
2. copy hof directory from sandbox, make sure there are no CVS
directories inside
3. cvs add hof && cvs add hof/* . Commit them, they will appear in CVS.
4. Only then branch your module for 4.6.
