That is wildly incorrect.  You want just:

        ALL     /home/dmorin/

You did commit taginfo after modifying it, didn't you?  When you did,
you should have gotten a message from CVS saying that it was "Rebuilding
administrative file database"; it sounds like that didn't happen.  If
not, it's because you managed to confuse CVS and it didn't know you were
modifying files in CVSROOT -- what's in your working directory's
CVS/Root file?  To work around the problem, you can force a database
rebuild by doing "cvs init".
