As far as I understand, the "default branch" feature is not meant to be
a general way of choosing which branch should be checked out by default.
 I believe it is meant for a very particular and purpose related to
vendor branches.  And using "cvs admin -b" even in the case of vendor
branches is also a questionable practice.

Consider merging the changes from NEW_BRANCH back to the main line of
development instead of trying to change the default branch.
