First I imported a bunch of files, and committed them.
Then developers made several commits.
Then I added a tag on the specific commit I used for the original import ( ok I 
*think* I did this right, but as a noob,
I may have screwed up)
Then developers made some other commits.

       Now, when I do a diff on a file that has not changed since its initial 
import, if I use the tag name only, I get
the whole file:
$ git diff SDK_0.0 Makefile

        if I do a describe
$ git describe
        then change the diff:
$ git diff SDK_0.0-34-g6a06923 Makefile
        diff behaves as I expect.

What am I doing wrong or what should I check?
