I cannot seem to turn off watches

You probably did

     floss$ cvs watch remove

on all the files, but forgot to also do:

     floss$ cvs watch off

A hint for diagnosing watch problems: Sometimes it can be immensely clarifying to just go into the repository and examine the CVS/fileattr files directly. See Repository Administration for more information about them.
