You are of course, correct. I missed the "things not yet in cvs" part.

For penitence I submit the following script for use in verification on the
troubled user's system.
I executed with with Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.16
(client/server) and got the following results.

It does as Larry indicates, b.txt still exists at the end, and
it also does what I thought I was indicating (cvs controlled files that are
not tagged are removed from the sandbox), i.e., the testdir/CVSROOT/ dir and
files are not in the sandbox at the end.

cd /tmp/
mkdir junktest
cd junktest/
export CVSROOT=/tmp/junktest/Repo
mkdir Repo
cvs init
cvs checkout -d testdir . 
cd testdir/
ls -l > a.txt
cvs add a.txt 
cvs commit -m commitmsg
ls -ltrh >> a.txt
cvs commit -m commitmsg
ls -ltrh >> b.txt
cvs tag PROD a.txt
cvs update -r PROD
ls -ltrh
cvs update -r PROD -P -d
ls -ltrh
