$Name$ Keyword does not expand

Hi there !

I would like to use the $Name$ Keyword in my java source. To do this, I added 
the line:

public final static String cvsRelease = new String("$Name$");

to my source. Then, I tagged it "prerelease-1_0". To get the substitution, I 

cvs -d  ":pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot" checkout -r 
prerelease-1_0 UserAccount

but the line just expanded to

public final static String cvsRelease = new String("$Name:  $");

I thought, there should stand "$Name: prerelease-1_0$" ??? Other tags 
($id$...) work just fine.

The log says, the tag is there:

address@hidden: > cvs -d  ":pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvsroot" 
log UserAccount/src/com/somewhere/frames/ 

RCS file: 
Working file: UserAccount/src/com/somewhere/frames/
head: 1.4
locks: strict
access list:
symbolic names:
        prerelease-1_0: 1.4
keyword substitution: kv
total revisions: 4;     selected revisions: 4

I dont' know what to do. I had the same problem at home and ignored it after 
a while, but here at work it is urgent...

Many thanks in advance,
Markus Grunwald
