CVS on Linux and Eclipse Plugin


i have a problem. I use CVS 1.8 on a SuSE Linux 8.0 Enterprise System. My Client is Eclipse with the CVS default Client. When I will tag my HEAD with the option "tag as version", then i get the folowing error:

cvs rtag -r "HEAD" "v-02" "test/standort/projekt"
    S-> fopen(/cvs/cvsroot/CVSROOT/history,a)
    S-> my_module (test/standort/projekt, Tagging, , v-02)
    S-> Reader_Lock(/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt)
    S-> Lock_Cleanup()
    S-> Parse_Info (/cvs/cvsroot/CVSROOT/taginfo, test/standort/projekt, ALL)
    cvs rtag: Tagging test/standort/projekt
    S-> write_lock(/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt)
    S-> rename(/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt/,dummy.file,,/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt/dummy.file,v)
    S-> Lock_Cleanup()
ok (took 0:00.170)
Error: projekt: S-> fopen(/cvs/cvsroot/CVSROOT/history,a)
Error: projekt: S-> my_module (test/standort/projekt, Tagging, , v-02)
Error: projekt: S-> Reader_Lock(/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt)
Error: projekt: S-> Lock_Cleanup()
Error: projekt: S-> Parse_Info (/cvs/cvsroot/CVSROOT/taginfo, test/standort/projekt, ALL)
Error: projekt: S-> write_lock(/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt)
Error: projekt: S-> rename(/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt/,dummy.file,,/cvs/cvsroot/test/standort/projekt/dummy.file,v)
Error: projekt: S-> Lock_Cleanup()

It seems to work, but it doesn't.
Why CVS bring me this error messages? Have somebody an idea, how i can get more Informations about this transaction (special parameters)?
When i try to tag with CVSNT, then this is working without any problems...

Thanx for any hints,
