there was a minor problem when the files were moved in CVS, but it  
should only effect date-based checkouts and updates.  i mention it at  
the end of http://drupal.org/node/73507.  one of these days i'm going  
to have a chance to fix this, but i've been saddled with work and  
honestly, haven't been getting too much help (with a few notable  
exceptions like merlin and webchick).  the task of porting project*  
and cvslog.module to 5.x looms large, and i'm way behind at my day

i just double checked in the core repository, and none of the modules  
you mention in their own sub-directories have the DRUPAL-4-7 tag.   
most of us have been able to checkout/update a DRUPAL-4-7 workspace  
of core without any troubles.  so, i'm guessing you've got something  
strange about your local setup (cvs client, sticky tag, sticky date,  
etc) that's causing your grief.

try checking out a fresh copy:

cvs -d[:pserver...] co -r DRUPAL-4-7 drupal

you can also try doing that in place, on top of your existing  
workspace (backup first), and it should work like a cvs update.

good luck,
