I noticed the same thing some time ago. This isn't a big problem
though, as you can easily generate the same diffs from 2006.0 to 2006.1
by something like:

$ for f in 2006.0/*xml; do diff -Naur $f ${f/2006.0/2006.1}; done

in cvs/.../doc/en/handbook/

I found that the easiest way to view actual changes since I hadn't
tracked the changes in draft at all.
