Follow-up Comment #2, bug #19555 (project cvs):

NOTABUG!  This is the intended behavior.

For example, if the latest revision of the file is 1.23 and you attach the
tag 'PreDelete' to it, 'PreDelete' refers to revision 1.23.  When you
'remove' the file, a new 'dead' revision is created, revision 1.24.  If you
try to retrieve the latest version of the file, you will be told that there
is no usable file available because the latest revision (1.24) is 'dead', but
if you ask for revision 'PreDelete', you are asking for revision 1.23, which
is NOT dead.  Similarly, if you try to attach 'PreDelete' to another
revision, CVS will tell you that 'PreDelete' is allready attached to a
revision.  (It may not tell you that the revision 'PreDelete' is attached to
is 1.23, but you didn't ask about that.)
