CVS 1.11 export with BINARY files (problem)

        I've checked out the archives and seem to be having a problem that
was supposedly fixed back in the 1.9 version of CVS.  However, I'm running a
freshly compiled 1.11 on Sun Solaris and experience the same problem as
described earlier.
        I am using CVS as a version system for a web enabled application.
All images are stored in a single directory and have been added to the
repository using the -kb option.  When I check out the files, everything is
great.  If I use the export command, though, the binary files come through
in a corrupt format.
        I've verified that the files are correctly entered as binary, as
shown in this output from cvs status:

File: Welcome.gif       Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:    1.5
   Repository revision: 1.5     /opt/cvs/dev/hydra/images/Welcome.gif,v
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      -kb

   Existing Tags:
        start                           (revision:
        CURRENT                         (branch: 1.1.1)

        Has anyone else seen this issue appear in recent versions of CVS and
if not, is there more information that I should supply in order to help weed
out this 'feature'?
