Valid cvs symbols

Hey all,

I'm in the process of evaluating svn, and attempting to import some RCS

To do this I did as the cvs manual says and copied the rcs tree into the
rcs tree and edited the CVSROOT/modules file.

I've attempted to run cvs2svn and got the following
Error while parsing cvs/src/dataflow/transform_client/test_runner.cpp,v:
  '28_05_02_2_46pm' is not a valid tag or branch name.

I had a quick look at the python script, and the problem is in pythons
rcsparse, not cvs2svn.

1) Is this an illegal tag? (Couldn't find a definition in the cvs
2) Any quick and dirty hacks to get this imported anyway? This is one of
many tags beginning with a number. (NOTE: The repository has been
developed in rcs for several years, there are no branches just symbols
to mark releases so using trunk only is not an option)

Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated.
