Why don't I get all the tags when I do cvs history -T

We use a procedure for testing fixes by first creating a branch (with a
fork tag) with the command:

cvs tag -b B_Defect_nnnnn
cvs tag -r B_Defect_nnnnn T_B_Defect_nnnnn

Then we go on to make the change, test on several platforms, then merge
the branch into it's parent (a maintanance branch or the HEAD).

Occasionally, we would like to find the date on which we created this
tag/branch pair.  So I use the command:

$ cvs history -T | grep nnnnn

Sometimes I get a history entry, and sometimes not.  Is there something
that trims the history file or limits the search? I can use the -a to see
tags from other users, but still don't see mine. 

Any ideas why this happens?  Anyone got a better way?
