OK, I reversed engineered things and /home/cvs-old has good copies
and seems to have been where things were being restored from, so could
someone please do the following:

 cd /home/cvs-old/
 for i in xembed xsettings icon-theme ; do
   mv $i /cvs
   chown -R otaylor:$i /cvs/$i
   find /cvs/$i -type d | xargs chmod g+s

Other possible "lost" modules:

 dbus-cpp  (appears in /home/cvs-old and /home/cvs-old/cvs)
 colorscheme (appears in /home/cvs-old/cvs)
 crystalball (appears in /home/cvs-old/cvs)
 translation (appears in /home/cvs-old/cvs)

I don't know who owns these modules, I haven't checked their contents.
