Re: NotebookSave[] Bugs

Since Notebooks are valid kernel expressions, you can always try Put in
place
of NotebookSave. In fact, the whole operation can be done in the kernel.

Module[{nb1=NotebookGet[InputNotebook[]],nb2},
 Put[nb1, "withcelltagname.nb"];
 nb2 = DeleteCases[nb1,Cell[__, CellTags->"CellTagName", ___], Infinity]];
 Put[nb2, "nocelltagname.nb"];
]
