The weird thing about these files is that the CVS history shows commits
on HEAD later than the file removal commit.  I don't recall if Vadim
unintentionally re-added the files before making those commits ... but
if he did, you'd think it'd have taken another explicit removal to get
rid of them in HEAD.  More likely, there was some problem in his local
tree that allowed a "cvs commit" to think it should update the
repository with copies of the derived files he happened to have.

I think this is a corner case that CVS handles in a particular way and
the tools people are using to read the repository handle in a different
way.  Which would be a bug in those tools, since CVS's interpretation
must be right by definition.
