Files modified since that time which should be included in the
release are tagged v4_4_1_1 -- but only changed files are currently tagged.

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.

Larry neglected to mention that, assuming the `cvs up -rv4_4_1_0' command he _did_ mention works, `cvs up -r v4_4_1_0 -jv4_4_1_0 -jv4_4_1_1' should get you your release as well, though I agree that just tagging the whole thing would be easier. You should be able to retroactively `cvs up -rv4_4_1_0; cvs tag v4_4_1_1' safely since _without_ `-F', tag won't overwrite existing tags. Then `cvs up -rv4_4_1_1' should get you your release.

And to make matters worse, we can't seem to go back to anymore, even
after a cvs up -A.  All the files are still being removed from the working
directory.  They look OK in CVS via the web interface.

        cvs up -r v4_4_1_0

I am for encouraging the progress of science in all its branches, and not for
raising a hue and cry against the sacred name of philosophy; for awing the
human mind by stories of raw-head and bloody bones to a distrust of its own
vision, and to repose implicitly on that of others; to go backwards instead of
forwards to look for improvement; to believe that government, religion,
morality and every other science were in the highest perfection in the ages of
the darkest ignorance, and that nothing can ever be decided more perfect than
what was established by our forefathers.
