I'm sort of confused by the CVS tags I think. I pulled down a tree

when I run the new kernel on top of the old base system
(1.2.0-RELEASE). Spot checking some of the files leads me to believe
that the files used in the build are indeed from the RELEASE_1_2 tag.
Does what I'm seeing indicate that there is some sort of inconsistancy
in my build tree?
Well my uname returns:

DragonFly 1.2.2-RELEASE DragonFly 1.2.2-RELEASE 
#0: Wed Jun  8 13:13:35 GMT 2005 
martin at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/VPC  i386

But I only did a nativekernel because I downloaded the 1_2 and build a 
kernel more suited for the virtual server hardware.

So I guess indeed that something is fishy.
