PLEASE, PLEASE do not start a new thread by hijacking an old thread
like this by changing the subject only partially!
This question has nothing whatever to do with tag priviliges...

Why could you not have used a subject like:
"Tag operation aborts with %b in argument list"

the %b argument is supposed to supply the 'type' of tag operation, but
unfortunately the CVSNT documentation does not list what is supposed
to be transferred. I tseted with %b %o andthe result after a tag
operation (add) is %b = N and %o = add

But as you probably note the tag operation does not fail at all for
me! You have to supply the CVSNT versions used on the server and
client (including the build number).
