It seems to be OK again. Maybe it was temporary ?

It would be straightforward to add a mapping to the conversion, but I
think it would affect the whole history...

I was thinking that the mapping was going to change when we finally
switch to git. Then it would be a natural cause of events...
Otherwise, we would have another step in our transition. Whether it's
worth doing it, depends on how long we expect to be in the transition
between CVS and git.
