cvs has a weird interaction between -r and -D when they are used together,
even more so when there is already a sticky tag snd/or sticky date on the
checked out files.

I believe there's a bug in there somewhere, but I've been using -A with an
explicit -r and/or -D for so long that I never took the time to analyze the
issue.  8-)
