Bug or interpretation?

   I really don't know if this qualifies as a bug or if I'm reading the INFO 
files wrong but I'll lay it out and see what comes of it.  I'm using 
cvs-1.11.1p1-7.i386.rpm from RedHat 7.3.

   Originally, I made the assumption that 'cvs tag' would use the top most 
revision in the tree rather than the revision which was locally present.  In 
order to combat that, I wrote a script (quite a while ago) which I found out 
wasn't doing what I wanted it to do.  Because it was ultra low priority, I only 
got to it today.  Basically what I was trying to do was gaurantee that the 
command would use the locally held version.

   To make a long story short:

      cvs tag -r BASE <randomchars> filename

doesn't accomplish what I would otherwise expect it to do.  In reding the INFO 
file, I was left with the impression that the above command would gaurantee the 
tag was placed on the revision currently on the system.  It doesn't seem to 
matter what I put in for <randomchars> it never comes back with the 

      T filename

In fact, all I get is a prompt back.

   Therein lies the question, did I misread/misinterpret the INFO file to 
believe that the above would work or is the code broken?
