I also noticed probably the same and I think too it's not ideal.
When doing rm myfile.cpp; cvs up myfile.cpp to restore a file to the original 
cvs state kdevelop notices that it doesn't exist anymore, removes it from its 
internal list of project files and doesn't seem to add it again, which has 
the effect that Quick open project files works worse the longer kdevelop is 
running (in days).
So if I understood correctly, I'm for your change.
