Hi there, 

I've got the following problem:

Trying to checkout a tagged file, leeds to the following:
cvs -Q -d ":sspi:CVS:D:\CVSRepository\ETCSourcecode" checkout -r
"build_ViXml4C_401_1_0_0" Extern/ViXml4C/build/constants.h

cvs server: in directory .:
cvs [server aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first
In the repository there is - for sure - the requested file. So I assumed the
tag to be wrong.
Omitting the tag  leads to checkout  tosucced ! So something must be wrong,
with the tag. Looking in the requested file in the repository, the following
tagname is there (which is exactly the same as above ...)
head	1.1;
locks; strict;
comment	@ * @;
Now I deleted the tag in the whole module (using "cvs rtag -d ....") and was
Reapplying the same tag 
cvs -d ":sspi:CVS:D:\CVSRepository\ETCSourcecode" rtag
build_ViXml4C_401_1_0_0 Extern/ViXml4C
suceeds , but has the following message at the end:
cvs rtag: attempt to insert duplicate key `build_ViXml4C_401_1_0_0'

Oops! What does this mean? Is this concerned with the error above??

Any help welcome
