Then get in the habit of running "cvs status" a lot. ;)

As I wrote in my handout about release management[1], before every  
cvs commit, you should run:

cvs diff  # is this the patch and only the patch i mean to be  
cvs status  # is this the branch i mean to be committing to?

ditto, before every cvs tag, you should run "cvs status"...
