This is not the TortoiseCVS newsgroup.  The TortoiseCVS newsgroup is here:

The version of TortoiseCVS I'm using on my PC automatically detects PDF's as 
binary (I just checked), so there is probably a simple explanation why yours 
did not.

I think I've perhaps added them from the command-line on a unix pc at my university.

Also CVS server has a standard configuration file (cvswrappers) where you are supposed to 
define file types before you do anything else.  Then regardless of what TortoiseCVS does 
it should work.  CVSNT server (GPL /free windows/linux/unix/mac) has a more "windows 
friendly" set of default file types, but not everything you would expect (eg: .doc 
is defined as ASCII by default, since in unix land it's not uncommon to call text files 

At my university, I guess pdf-files are not automatically binary - that's the only explanation I can come up with. I guess I'll have to figure out how to change til cvswrappers file accordingly...
