Well, I think the first thing to do is to fix the bug (sounds like a bug in
CVS 1.12 to me).

I don't have a copy of 1.12 handy to test this, but try adding the -p option
to see if that helps.

Since you're doing a file compare, you could just do it the way CVS expects
you to - invoke the 'diff' command and send the current contents of the file
;=) Or, since you want to fetch the original version in its entirety, you
could send an empty file. CVS will then respond with all the lines that you
"deleted", i.e. the entire file (which you can then redirect to your
external file comparer).
