Try "cvs -z3 co grass -r releasebranch_11_april_2001_5_0_0".

AFAIK, the "releasebranch_11_april_2001_5_0_0" *is* the current working
tree for GRASS 5.0 (and your new code is in there).  I'd vote for not
using tags in the future for code that will be modified (release
snapshots seems easy enough...).
