It works as it should, but it may not be what you expect :)

In 1.8, the externals were always pegged to the HEAD revision. That
usually works fine, but in some special situations, this lead to
non-working checkouts of the tag.
In 1.9, the 'last committed rev' of the external is used instead of
HEAD. That's the correct revision to peg the external to, but that means
almost all externals are pegged to a different revision, not all to the
same (HEAD).

The result (a checkout of the tag you want to create) is the same: the
file content of the externals are the very same, only the peg revision
is different.
