Well, if the non-branch-tag elimination also removed this tag description
(while keeping the sources) I feel that neither "cvs log" nor "cvs status"
can see anything (as it is removed). Hopefully I am wrong.

It is not clear to me *when* (Date) the non-branch tag
"releasebranch_11_april_2001_5_0_0" has been applied. This may reduce the
number of log-lines to analyse (at time 250k lines).

Well, I try my very best :-)

 - we know when the non-branch tag was applied
 - we have a version shortly before the application

we might find out which code was removed due to the non-branch tag-removal?
Just another guess...
