Digging around a bit more, I found out that we now have more than one 
CVSNT server running here. I had made the updates and tagging into 
one server, but was trying to do an export from the other (which of 
course didn't have those updates) - I didn't check the CVSROOT that I 
was using carefully enough. Stupid really. Just plain stupid. I must 
fight to get procedures tightened up around here to make sure that 
everybody gets told when somebody changes or moves servers and/or 
repositories - it's a recipe for a disaster just waiting to happen. 
Fortunately it seems that we have caught this one just in time to 
prevent anything nastier happening, but I'll double check the other 
projects to make sure...

Thanks again for your efforts and sorry to have bothered you all...
