FW: cvs import & checkout -D date_spec

It does not seem time zone is the issue here, unless I 
misunderstood something. Both the server and the client are in 
the same time zone. As I said, the same CVS checkout command,

        cvs checkout -D <date_spec> -r <branch tag> <file path>

used to work with the 1st import. It does not work after the 
2nd import. And because the import was for a branch, I have to 
re-tag so that a check out picks up the latest (i.e. the 2nd 
import). Indeed, a checkout without the -D works fine and 
picks up the latest. And checkout with -D and without -r also 
works fine. There seems to be some conflict between -D & -r. 
But what's interesting is that checkout with -D and -r works 
fine before the 2nd import!
