Branching and tags

Hi CVS gurus,

We've just started to use branches (a new experience), and have encountered
some difficulties.

We've spawned one new branch from the root directory (called
MBX-1_0_1_PATCHES) and updated a few files on that branch. Everything seemed
to work fine until we tagged the files in the new branch (MBX-1_0_2_b1).

A checkout based on the latter tag does not commit new revisions properly
(CVS responds with 'the tag MBX-1_0_2_b1 is not a branch').

A checkout base on the branch tag and a following update did *not* update
the files in the sandbox. Why is that?

What is the proper way of checking out a specified tagged extract from a
branch (the branch itself is a tagged extract isn't it?). The whole idea is
that the sandbox should be "based on a particular branch", but updated based
on a tag. Does this make any sense?

Any help on this would be much appreciated!
