When I re-checked my console output I noticed what seems to have 
actually happened, but I'm still at loss for an explanation. It 
seems cvs added the file in the wrong location.

In Mac/OSX, I did
cvs add setupDocs.py
cvs commit ../../Misc/ACKS setupDocs.py

The commit message produced the following output:
Checking in ../../Misc/ACKS;
/cvsroot/python/python/dist/src/Misc/ACKS,v  <--  ACKS
new revision: 1.199; previous revision: 1.198
RCS file: /cvsroot/python/python/setupDocs.py,v
Checking in setupDocs.py;
/cvsroot/python/python/setupDocs.py,v  <--  setupDocs.py
initial revision: 1.1

So, it somehow added my file at the root of the repository!

Anyway, I've fixed it, so the only thing that remains is a 
baffled look on my face as to why it did this, and also as to 
why viewcvs acts funny.
