Early today one of our developers ran an rtag to create a tag on a branch
for a module.
He subsequently ran an operation that relied on the new tag and the
operation failed.
I investigated and found that the tag was not on at least a fair number of
files in the module.
I had him re-run the process to create the tag and everything worked OK.

We have database auditing turned on and when I look at the tag log I can
see the original operation processed 5759 records. This is correct. The
files I spot checked that did not have the tag are including in the audit
database as having gotten the tag.
The audit DB shows that when he re-ran the rtag again it marked 4064 files.
Literally all of these files were in the first group, too. From what I can
tell the rtag operation does not create audit entries for the files where
the tag already existed (we did not have _F on). 

The rtag call is programmatically generated so there isn't much chance of
the user entering the wrong values.

There are no other tag operations in the tag audit database for this time
frame until we re-ran the operation.

He did not capture the output from the original operation so I don't know
if something significant was returned but the audit DB certainly looks like
it succeeded.

We're using 2.5.03 (Scorpio) Build 2382 for both client and server.

Any ideas?
