Aside: you copied files out of a CVS sandbox, where CVS was giving you
a nice safety net ?

Sombody else added and committed a .cvsignore file while you
weren't looking. The .cvsignore file you copied to your
sandbox now conflicts with it.

Yep. Somebody else beat you to it.
How to get out:
mv .cvsignore my-new-cvsignore
The update will bring in the other guy's .cvsignore . Look at
it and decide if it is better than your own. If you decide
that no, you would rather replace it by your own file, just
mv my-new-cvsignore .cvsignore
