When browsing a source tree stored under CVS, we might want to look at deleted files marked as "In Attic". To display their name in directory listing it is necessary to click on "Show attic files" button. Then, a click on their name should display the decorated file. Instead of that, we get "file does not exist" and we must once again click on "show attic files".
Since we intentionally clicked on the attic-file link, it would be nice to avoid this second click. More over, when we are inside an Attic file and we click on an identifier, the definitions and references should also directly jump to an Attic file without the need to get rid of the "file does not exist" warning.
Suggested fix: add _showattic=1 in fileref and idref if present in the URL
