No sure.  One interesting thing is that his --binary output seems to
indicate that his file's revision 1.2 was using DOS-style EOLs wereas
the current version is using Unix-style EOLs.  So maybe that has
something to do with the problem, indeed.  Also, of course it may also
depend on the CVS version used on the repository's server.
