Just speculating: it has something todo with the current directory 
where the cvs commit command is executed in or it depends on the 
difference that the PEPs are under nondist and Freds files were under dist.

Possible ugly workaround for Barry: for new files first commit an empty 
file and then the real file just a moment later. ;-)
