I've had this problem before, also, and wiping the directory and checking out 
a fresh copy did not help. By about the third update, I had a mixed setup of 
4.7 and HEAD, with the update wanting to download every module and theme 
available. After several attempts to fix it, I finally just quit using CVS 
and went back to the "normal" way.

FYI, I used this as my model, as it was the only thing that made sense to me 
at the time: http://www.lullabot.com/articles/cvs_quick_reference
(It seems to have been updated since the last time I used it, 'cause I never 
did the diff thing. I concocted a different way of checking for changes.)
