sounds reasonable... It really looks like this file is being rebuilt
when I want to get project by tag.
What this file for and what may alter/corrupt it?

We have commit script, which sends email notifications and tag script,
which restricts tag operations and send email notifications.
We also have traditional cvs for tests, but it listens nonstandart port
and nobody works with it for long time.
