Yes. I suspect greatly that you are using the ``cvs tag -r
<revision>'' command to label your files. Do not do this! Use the rtag
command. The cvs tag command only applies tags to those files which
are visible in your working copy. So if you tell it to tag some other
revision of those files in another branch, it won't apply the tag to
the files which exist in that branch, but do not exist in your working

Consider the exact commands you are using, and look up their semantics
in the CVS reference manual written by Per Cederqvist. You will likely
discover the source of your error.
