Probably not, although it doesn't really make sense to specify them both
unless you're using -r to specify a branch tag.  (If you're running an
old enough release of CVS then they *are* exclusive -- you can get a
newer release from www.cvshome.org.)

No, if they were mututally exclusive you'd get an error message.  What
that implies is that you specified a revision tag rather than a branch
tag and the date of that revision didn't match the date you specified.
