Committing on a previously tagged version with WinCVS

Hi all,
during the development of a module I needed to go back to a previous
version that was tagged as LADDER_WIN2000_0_2. The CVS version was 1.7.
So I committed the version I was working on, that became the 1.8.
Then I retrived the previouslytagged  version using the update command with
the Retrieve rev/tag/branch option selected to the name of the tagged
version (LADDER_WIN2000_0_2).
I modified the tagged version (1.7) and now I want to commit it. If I try
to commit I get the following error message:

cvs commit -m "- Aggiunta funzione ReadNewBytes.\n- Modificata funzione
Caratteri_Ricevuti e Wai..." -r LADDER_WIN2000_0_2 circbuf.c (in directory
cvs commit: sticky tag `LADDER_WIN2000_0_2' for file `circbuf.c' is not a
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!

***** CVS exited normally with code 1 *****

I understand that I can't commit a 1.7 version to a 1.8, because 1.8
already exist. I think I should branch and tag before updating to and an
older version. But now is not possible.
What should I do now to discard the 1.8 version and keep working (and
committing) on the tagged version ?

Tank you in advance.
