I tried this as well; I wasn't able to retrieve the code using guest &
the symbolic tag TIGRIS_WM_0_89_HACKED. I was able to get
TIGRIS_SEP_13_2000 (a branch I'm maintaining because we've got sites
using it) -- and I don't know what the difference is.

At first I thought the problem might be perms on some file in CVSROOT
... but then it'd be harder to explain why it works for some files.

I'll forward this along to Karl Fogel; perhaps he'll have some insight.
