That's possibly a tortoise feature (I think.. not aware of any special 
handling for binary files).  You can do a 'status -q' then check the output.

Very little in CVS makes any distinction between the two - there's basically 
just the check
in commit.  You can work it out by looking for .0. in the tag output (from the 
log output on the file).

Since an edit is on a file, the tags aren't taken into account at all during 
an edit (although technically an edit is of a single revision also... the 
terminology is a little confused in places).
