Can't change ascii/binary type of file

A few months ago I mistakenly committed a Crystal Report (*.rpt) file into CVS 
as an ASCII file.  This broke the file, but no one noticed for a while.  
Recently, I realized my error and tried to correct it by removing the file from 
CVS, then re-committing it as binary.  

It appears, however, that CVS remembers the original version of the file was 
ASCII, and is treating the new version as ASCII, even though I explicitly 
uploaded it as binary.  This is manifest in the fact that the report is still 

All our other *.rpt files work properly, because we reconfigured CVS to treat 
these files as binary by default.  Is there any way to get CVS to treat this 
report as binary? 

I'm using WinCVS Beta 13 (Build 2) on Windows 2000, service pack 3, 
connecting to CVSNT 2.0.11, on another Win2Ksp3 machine.
