Converting binary files to text (revisited) or (cvs admin -kkv doesn't work)

As I mentioned a few days ago, I am trying to convert what once were binary
files to text. Following what appeared to be a good solution from this
mailing list, I tried the following:
cat /dev/null > filename.ext
cvs ci -m 'kb -> kv' filename.ext
cvs admin -kkv filename.ext
copy file from good location
cvs ci -m 'text version of the file' filename.ext
Unfortunately, "cvs admin -kkv" did not change the state of the file.
According to "cvs stat", the file is still tagged as binary with the 'kb'
flag, and keyword expansion/substitution is not working (of course).
What do I have to do to force CVS to accept the change to keyword
