Hi, am I the only person that used the functionality "Tag committed files" + "Override existing tags" once and then happily updated and committed other files, without noticing that these checkboxes are still active?
At the end I just updated 20 files in CVS HEAD and kept overwriting history tags - something that definitely should not happen.
Does the suggestion to always reset (not persist) these checkboxes seem reasonable? Currently you can overwrite existing tags by accident and you will not be able to fix it. It the functionality is removed, the worst case is that you will have to put a tag on the files after the commit.
If the above mentioned change is too much, then I would like to report UI inconsistency in this dialog:
You can change the Comment, press "Cancel" and your comment will still be remembered. I would expect the same behavior with these "tagging" checkboxes. Unfortunately when they are checked and you uncheck, press "Cancel", go back - they are still on!
