src.nonGPL wasn't removed until after the release branch was created
(AFAICT, it was removed the following day).

Did you use "cvs update -dP"? Empty directories will only be removed
if you use the "-P" switch. Similarly, directories which exist in the
repository but not in your local copy will only be added if you use
the "-d" switch.

If you checked out a copy of the release branch on the day it was
created, then updated it without "-P" (or if you made a copy of the
head then updated it to the release branch without "-P"), the
src.nonGPL directory (and its subdirectories) will still exist (with
the appropriate tag), they just won't contain any files.

Personally, I have "update -dP" in my ~/.cvsrc file, so "cvs update"
will always add and remove directories as necessary.
