So what do I do??
I'm using CVS v1.11.1p1 compiled for Win32. I don't know whether that is
POSIX compliant or not? (or what that even means :). 
I thought that -ko stopped keyword expansion and -kb stopped both
keyword expansion and newline conversion. Will I lose any functionality
if I import my text sources into CVS with -kb?? I think that the reason
the binary files are being corrupted is because of the newline
