Yes they should have been ok, I'd say a mucked up merge is correct. I use
cvs -z3 up -Akkv
when I need to reset to point to HEAD. grabbing the HEAD tag is a nuisance -
because it's not a branch, so the files get frozen and don't update. You
need MAIN if you want the trunk tag, but oftimes -rMAIN doesn't work.

It's not visible on the web, but it does exist.
