Is that a branch tag (i.e., created with "tag -b") or an ordinary
revision tag (created without "-b")?

NO!  "update -A" moves you off the branch and on to the trunk!  If you
checked out the branch, you don't have to do anything to commit.  If you
checked out a revision on the branch, you need to update to the branch
itself and then commit.
