You had a sticky tag on the file, probably because you used
'-rrelease21-maint' on a cvs checkout or update. Good thing it was
release21-maint, though, and not some random other revision, or you would
have created another branch :-)

You can remove stickyness by using 'cvs update -A'. I personally just have
two trees, ~/python/python-2.2 and ~/python/python-2.1.1, where the last one
was checked out with -rrelease21-maint.
