Standard CVS does not create that tag.  Either you're using a
non-standard version (such as CVSNT or a locally patched version) or
it's an artifact of CVSGraph.

It's possible that that is the way CVSGraph displays the default branch.
If you do ``cvs log -Nh'' on a file, you'll see a "branch:" keyword that
indicates the default branch (if blank, the default branch is the
trunk).  When you checkout without specifying a particular revision, you
get the most recent revision on the default branch.  Newly imported
files have the default branch set to the vendor branch, locally modified
files have the default branch set to the trunk.
