Please ask your questions on the newsgroup.

In a clean sandbox you should be able to "cvs add" or "cvs remove" or
anything else.

If you delete the old sandbox completely then do a clean checkout in the
same location thinks should work - but my understanding is you tried
this previously - you've probably found a bug in PushOK and there is
nothing to do but to fix the bug.
