OK, I just dd not want to update my sandbox to the branch before
adding the alias tag because there are new directories added after the
branch so they would disappear during the update. But biting the
bullet and doing so I found that the branch is now renamed. In the
WinCvs graph view both are visible but all the file revisions are tied
to the new alias name. Fine.
