So, if a tag is successfully used one time, cvs assumes that it exists
for all modules ? Is this a cvs issue, or is it a normal feature ?

yes, but it's very time consuming with 8000 files in a module... 

Perhaps a better approach is to create a special file 'lsttag' in every
cvs module. This file will be tagged with every rtag command, so I can
use cvs stat -v on that particular file ? Is this a correct approach ?
