It seems HEAD is interpreted as main branch. At least with "-rHEAD" it
seems I get all revisions on the main branch, and with "-rHEAD." I get only
the last revision on the main branch (usually called HEAD). Which is
consistent with the branch revision selection:

cvs -H log
    -r[revisions]   Specify revision(s)s to list.
        branch          All revisions on the branch.
        branch.         The last revision on the branch.
