You should have a look at too.
I've removed (with a simple "/bin/rm -rf") the "prj--release--a.b" version that has been created by tag -S, and repeated the process many times, but with the same end result!

The short version: NEVER EVER DO THAT.

The longer version:

Since tla maintains a local cache (revision libraries, pristine
trees, ...), deleting and recreating a branch with the same name has
catastrophic effects. Your problem probably comes from here.
Okay, I've done that many times!
I was needing a way to remove the branch!
I didn't know what else I have to remove when removing a branch (since I've no revision libraries and didn't know of the use of pristine trees made by tla).

Now that I've removed all the pristine trees, I've recreated a correct version of the "release" branch. However "Changing_20History" is an interesting reading, thank you.

I hope now my branches will evolve without other troubles.
