Short answer: No, there isn't a way to do "cvs update -r<tag>"
without deleting the files that don't have the tag.

To do specifically that?  No.  And you'll run into more problems
when you try to commit from the second sandbox -- it won't let
you because of the sticky release (aka non-branch) tag.

If you describe the goals you're trying to accomplish, I'm sure
we can find a way.  Offhand, I'd guess that the answer will be
one of:
  - ignore the problem because it isn't really a problem, or
  - use a branch
But of course, at this point I don't know which of those is
appropriate, if in fact either one is :-)

There is?!?  Which one?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea.
