I can't spot anything obvious. Here are some things you might check:

Does the tag 'b_proj_dev' actually exist in the 'proj' module?

Does a 'cvs stat -v' or a 'cvs rlog' on one of the files in the project show
the tag, or something similar?

Can you capture the stdout and stderr output of the cron job, and examine it
for any clues?

Does the command work properly if you type it in interactively?
