I have found that CVS has problems if you use a slash(/) character in
a tag/branch name.  The tag is created ok and you can checkout/update
using that tag.. however, cvs status will then report "Entry Invalid"
and new revisions can't be committed on such a branch.

Well, the documentation states that the only characters allowed in tags are letters, digits, underscores and dashes (and the tag must start with a letter). So this may not have been noticed before.

I'm using cvs 1.11.6 on Solaris with pserver access.
I have confirmed that the problem still exists in 1.11.20.

Thanks for reporting this, Alan.
