I've switched over the build system to build by particular dates:

Perhaps I had the wrong command. I tried:

cvs update -d -D 2005-09-27T23:53+0000 -r SABS-KG

But that doesn't have sticky date.

Is this a bug?
No, CVS is behaving exactly the way it's supposed to. For purposes of the 'update' command, a date is considered to be a kind of tag. A file can only be sticky on one tag at a time.

An important thing to note is that the -D flag always selects revisions from the default branch (which is usually the trunk, unless you have used 'cvs admin -b').
