Sometimes, if you use `cvs admin -kb' to set the binary file type
after it's already been added, you need to check in a new, uncorrupted
version of the file before you can check out uncorrupted versions.  To
avoid this problem, you can use `cvs add -kb <file>' to add files with
an initial binary status.

Also, be careful that you are not checking out with some keyword
option, like `cvs up -kk'.

Cheers,

Derek
