That's the problem -- you need to tag *all* the files.  You can tag as
you go by specifying -F to tag to allow it to move the existing tag, but
you'll have to be careful that you don't move the wrong tag by accident.
Better is to wait until you're ready to release to tag all the
files.  If you want to change files that aren't supposed to go into the release, you should either make those changes on a branch or
else make a branch for the release.

        cvs up -r v4_4_1_0
