I have seen this as well, but only when accessing a <repository> that is
actually a symlink. For instance if you have:

        /cvsroot -> /foo/cvs

If you do the above commands like this (for the above):

        cvs -d /foo/cvs rtag -b R1 IHM

You will not get the assertion error. I believe this error will occur for
all the direct accesses (rtag, rlog, rannotate) of a repository *if* the
<repository> is a symlink.

BTW, don't confuse 'tag' and 'rtag', 'rtag' operates directly on the repository
where as 'tag' works on your working dir and the repository.
