Are you sure the cvs-keyword configuration for that file is correct?

I have a similar problem with the texmacs cvs. The maintainer is just
too lazy and ignorant to correctly set the thing up so binary files have
keyword expansion enabled.

For some reason, that does not cause any problem with "cvs co" or "cvs
update", but it breaks with the command used by cscvs.

When adding the "-kb" (disable the damn expansion) option to the "cvs
update" command in cscvs, things work right.
