I've created a branch off of the trunk and need to know what was modified on
the trunk subsequent to the branch creation.  I'm not sure I understand the
correct way to get the answer to my question.

We've created a "ROOT-OF" label in the trunk to mark the point where the
branch was created.  If I execute the following

       cvs rdiff -s -r  ROOT-OF-POST_3_0_PR_20010823 <module>

I seem to get the right answer.  Why doesn't it work if I do the following:

       cvs rdiff -s -r  ROOT-OF-POST_3_0_PR_20010823 -r HEAD <module>

Shouldn't that compare my "ROOT-OF" label with the tip of the trunk?  Doesn't
HEAD imply the trunk's tip?  Or does it imply the trunk's root?

What would I do if I did not have a "ROOT-OF" label?
