Kidding aside, I believe you. I don't doubt I must have done something

% cd /usr/pkgsrc
% cat CVS/Tag

Sounds like you did some research etc... I'm not arguing.

Could have been. I'll see if I can carefully reproduce the issue and then 
I'll come back with more data/intelligence.

No doubt. That's good advice. 

Thanks again for the help and participation, folks.
