D'oh! Hm, I'm not sure how easily that can be done. In theory you should be
able to "cvs tag -d release22-maint" in the Mac-specific subdirectory, then
do the checkins, then "cvs tag -b release22-maint" in the Mac directory again.
So long as there's not been any checkins on the branch in the directories that
you're doing the tag shifting, you should be fine. Probably. Although checking
on a little toy CVS root is probably a great idea :)
In fact, I just did this on a local toy project, and it worked fine.

I'd strongly recommend using cvs tag -d followed by retagging, rather than
using tag -F to try and move it - I've had bad experiences in the past with
