Yes, I'm afraid so.  The problem is that CVS doesn't keep track of the
relationship between revisions on the vendor branch and revisions on the
trunk.  As far as it knows, and 1.2 are completely unrelated, so
it's meaningless to ask for the changes between them (it goes ahead and
does *something* rather than just refusing to do anything, but what it
does isn't particularly useful).
