Hi I have had the same problem a couple of times. I searched "everywhere" to find a solution, but found none. My experience is that this error occurs when the file is binary and the tag contains consecutive zeroes (which is the case for you too I see). The error is not consistent - your may have a lot of tags that works fine, and then out of the blue you get a tag that wont work. I am running an older cvs version (1.10.8) and planning to upgrade, so I'm not happy to hear that this error is still "in there". My "solution" is to avoid double-zeroes in tags, so if a tag has to contain a date I would make it something like: T16-x8-2xx2. Haven't had the problem since.

I haven't been able to pin it down, but it seems that two zeroes (00) in a row in the tag name causes this to happen more often than not. Searching the net (this mailing list and news archives) i've found a couple references to what seems to be the same problem but no solutions. I did a quick test that I hope illustrates the problem. Check out the last part where cvs status reports a Sticky Tag with a missing 0.
