You could use rtag to tag yesterday, then revert back to that.
Something like this should work:
cvs rtag -D yesterday LastGoodCode
cvs up -j HEAD -j LastGoodCode
I think that shoud work.
I was playing a little with the update yesterday--it seems to be
behaving strangely to me too, but I might have it's usage wrong??
