By "partial check-ins" I mean a check-in consisting of multiple files. If you rtag while someone is doing a check-in of multiple files, you might end up tagging some of the newer versions and missing others. While the atomicity code prevents interruption of a single file check-in, I don't believe it prevents check-ins happening during the entire rtag process (at least not with the versions I've used (1.11 and previous)).
