You might try using the '-B' option to rtag. This was added in 1.11.2 and affects to the '-F' option; it may affect the '-a' as well (I've not tried it.)

From NEWS, it seems logical that it would apply to '-a':

* The "tag" and "rtag" commands will no longer move or delete branch
tags unless you use the new -B option.  (This prevents accidental
changes to branch tags that are hard to undo.)

we've upgraded from cvs 1.11 to cvs 1.11.18 some time ago and it seems the -a 
flag in
cvs rtag stopped working.

We have a floating tag that we move periodically to the latest stable version,
for example:

    cvs rtag -a -F -r rel_5_1 latest_stable module_name

The problem is that files that have been removed and are no longer in rel_5_1 
keep their "latest_stable" tag, although -a should clear the tag from attic 
files. Or
at least it used to in 1.11

Is it a bug? Or is this feature no longer supported?
