If I understand where you are going, you should have checked out
with the tag name of the branch itself, not the tag name of the
release on the branch.

Right, that's what it does.  And you ran that command because CVS
wouldn't let you commit to a sticky release tag.  You need a sticky
*branch* tag.  Just do a "cvs update -r<branch tag>".
