.....for that file.  Many of the past threads mention this problem

I have read the various threads about "cvs log" and "cvs rlog" not doing
what one expects when run with "-rtag1:tag2".  I think I'm seeing a
problem - or not understanding something:

I have two tags on the same branch ("rel2").  'cvs rdiff' does the
correct thing when I ask it what changed between two tags on that branch:

% cvs -q rdiff -kk -s -rbuild-1261 -rbuild-1263 tree3
File tree3/apps/uninst/myuninst/myuninst.cpp changed from revision 1.7 to
File tree3/lib/mycontrol/mycontrolmy.c changed from revision to
File tree3/ui/data/htmlhelp/desktop/mytt.hhp changed from revision 1.7 to

However, 'cvs [r]log' gives back the last log entry for _every_ file in the 

% cvs -q rlog -N -rbuild-1261:build-1263 tree3

This is with cvs 1.11.1p1 on the client and server.

This is what I did to work around it:

%  cvs -q log -N -rrel2 `cvs -q rdiff -s -rbuild-1261 -rbuild-1263 tree3  | sed 
-e's/^File tree3\///' -e's/ changed.*$//' -e'/^$/d' -e'/ /d'`
