Well, it will work if you delete the tag, wait until the overnight
build, and then re-add it the NEXT day.  The way it works is by
performing an 'svn ls' and comparing it to the previous day's 'svn ls'.
So in the case where you 'svn rm' and then 'svn cp' to delete and
recreate the tag, it doesn't notice the change unless the 'rm' happens
one day and the 'cp' happens the next.

The script is in packaging/win32 so you're welcome to hack on it.
