I lost you because I typed "the" instead of "there". My sentence
should have read:

   "Are there files on which the symbolic name 'RELEASE_C2_1' exists
   *both* as a tag and as a branch label?"

What I don't understand is, why is core_globals.c even *present* under
tags/RELEASE_C2_1/? If that symbolic name is not listed as a tag on
any regular revision in the RCS file, then no revision of that file
should be present anywhere under tags/RELEASE_C2_1/.

(Hence I'm anxious to see the full RCS data, if possible.)
