If you know the time you did finish version 3 and if there is some
time difference between that time and the time of the first commit for
version #4 then you can do as follows:
- Check out your project, this gets you the latest revisions
- cvs update and set the update time to a date in between the two
versions. THis gets you the files for version 3
- Now tag the files in the sandbox with the version 3 tag
- Finally update the files and reset the sticky tag

This will tag all the files you wanted to tag for the version provided
that there is a time (or better date) between the two commits (last on
version 3 and first on version 4)
