This is just saying that you have deleted them but that you haven't  
committed those deletions to the repository yet. Next time you commit  
they won't be listed. If it bothers you then cd into the mod_tables  
directory and commit only those files with the comment 'deleting old  
files' or something.

Cheers, Tim
