CVS polling is blind when using a branch set to a variable

      Description

      I have a local CVS repository, i.e. CVSROOT=/tmp/cvs_repo/cvs.

      My job has a parameter of type "CVS Symbolic Name parameter" in order to allow the user to select a branch, a tag or the head. The parameter is called "tag_or_branch". See the first snapshot.

      My job has a CVS repository defined, pointing to the folder specified above. I have set the location to "branch" and set the branch name to ${tag_or_branch}. See the second snapshot.

      When triggering the build manually, I can choose the branch or head and it works fine.

      My problem is that the polling always says that there are no changes even though I know there is a change. If I run the command (rlog...) manually it says that there is a change. Switching the location field to "head" instead of "branch" makes it work again. However it defeats the purpose of the parameter tag_or_branch.
