Hi Eivind,

It works! The command will change the symbols-entry in the *,v-File 
for the branch-symbol from "<branchname>:;" to 
"<branchname>:1;". CVS thinks, there still is a branch-specific 
version, but it is actually a pointer to the current version of the 
main branch.
I found another, even dirtier way to deal with my problem: When I 
remove the "<branchname>:;"-entry completely from the symbols-
section, CVS forgets that there is a branch-specific version, and I
will again get the head version when using the -f - option on checkout.

With both tricks, history remains intact, especially all tags still
point to correct versions.

Thanks for your help!
