Question: cvs update -A

A question about "cvs update -A".

If a file has the sticky tag set to a tag, but the file revision for
that tag is the same as HEAD, should "cvs update -A" actually retrieve
the file from the server again?

I upgraded from 1.11.17 to 1.11.23, and I have people telling me that
previously, update -A would not result in in the  file being retrieved
from the repository again if clearing the sticky tag did not result in
a change in the file revision, but that since updating to 1.11.23, it

Normally, this wouldn't be an issue, but in both cases, these are
large repositories, and they report that previously, "update -A" would
finish in a few minutes, but now takes 20 minutes or more.
