Or I am.  *All* the CVS commands that process the Entries file use the
same code, and it handles merging the changes from Entries.Log.  I just
verified that the tag command does, indeed, tag directories listed in
Entries.Log just like it should.  I read what Mariellen wrote as
implying that they have some local process that is reading the Entries
file and not handling Entries.Log, but perhaps I am mistaken.  If so,
Mariellen needs to show the exact sequence of commands to reproduce the
problem (along with the output of ``cvs version'').
