Yes, it starts with an uppercase letter 'D'.

In most cases you get this problem when a directory has been physically
moved to another location in the repository, in this case it's still on
your harddisk, but CVS can't find it in the repository any longer.

gnome-core/capplets/CVS/Entries should look like this:

$ cat CVS/Entries
/.cvsignore/1.1/Fri Sep  4 21:25:41 1998//
/README/1.1/Sun Sep 27 11:47:07 1998//
/ Oct  2 11:09:54 1998//
