Ah, no, I worked around that by removing REL7_1_BETA tags before the 
conversion. Sorry, forgot to mention. I haven't investigated why those 
are causing problems, because I don't care about the 7.1 beta tags much.

So the procedure is to:

1. rsync PostgreSQL main repository.
2. Remove offending tags:

cvs -d ~/pgcvsrepository-hacked/ rtag -d REL7_1_BETA2 pgsql
cvs -d ~/pgcvsrepository-hacked/ rtag -d REL7_1_BETA3 pgsql
cvs -d ~/pgcvsrepository-hacked/ rtag -d REL7_1_BETA pgsql

3. Run git-cvsimport.

BTW, if we ever convert to git altogether as a project, we'd probably 
use something else again for the conversion. Many people recommend 
cvs2git on the git mailing lists. We can't use it for the mirror because 
it doesn't support incremental updates, but for a one-off conversion 
it's probably the best option.
