CVSROOT/val-tags didn't have the necessary tag in it - I added it in 
the same format as the others that were already there:

V1_1_2 y

Now when I try the export, it tries to update all the directories of 
the module, but I don't get any files or directories created in my 
target directory for the exported code. Should I also check for any 
other tags that belong on that branch and add them too? Or what?
