hello Do I understand it correctly, your checking out a project from cvs,
that has a given tag. and then you would like to delete some files ??

If so I would really like to know what cvs version your using. Because I
have a opposite situation. Where I do not want to delete tagged files. But
atm im able to .

I would really like the message your getting, can you help me ??

Concerning your problem, try using
update -A, which removes the stickey tags. but ofcause it will result in
your removing files from the main/head branch

Kind reguards
