With cvs compiled from latest sources, I am able to get the list 
of files committed on a branch using the 'cvs log' command.

Larry mentioned in an earlier post that
        You should always tag the branch point when you create a branch. 

What is the motivation behind creating a branch point tag when branching?
I could get the list of files using the 'cvs log' command without specifying
the branch point tag.

Any cases where the branch point tag comes in handy?

You said you didn't have a tag for the branch point.  And it doesn't
need it -- when you give -r a branch name, it only shows revisions on
the branch.

Then you need to upgrade.

That's why you need -S.  Without it, you get the header for every file,
reguardless of whether you've selected any revisions or not.  -S
suppresses the header when there are no selected revisions.
