That's probably because you still have old project name in hidden configuration files.

In Java Package Explorer View press triangle button in task bar, like it shown on screen-shot below and select Filters... item

Then unselect ".* resources" item like it shown on screen-shot below

Then do the search for old name in all files within new renamed project and replace all entries with new name.

No matter what it names now all CVS folders still contain old module name in CVN\Repository file and that's why your commits come to the old CVS module in repository. So you ether should delete all CVS folders in your local filesystem or disconnect your project from CVS with meta information deletion through Team/Disconnect... context menu on your project in any eclipse navigator view. Then you should share it again in CVS module with new name.
