The sticky tag is stored in the administrative files under your
CVS\ folders.  Since you are using TortoiseCVS, you can configure
Windows Explorer to show you your sticky tags, if any.  Click "View"
on the taskbar and switch to the "details" view.  Click "View"
again and pick "Choose Columns" (in Win2000;  they changed it in
WinXP).  Enable the CVS information from the popup.

Right-click the top folder, "CVS", "Update Special", and choose
"Return to mainline" in the revisions tab (I think).
