CVS records timestamps in UTC -- I suspect that your local time is 5
hours behind UTC.  Did you specify any options for the rtag command,
like a particular date or time?  If not, I don't know of any way that
could have happened unless the tag already existed on the file and you
overlooked the message telling you that it wasn't being moved.

In general, it's much better to use tag in a working directory rather
than using rtag on a module because when you tag a working directory you
know exactly which revision of each file you're tagging.
