Run 'cvs status myimagefile.png' and look at the Sticky Options.  If you see
-kb they are binary.

Unless you have an entry in your cvswrappers file for .png files, these files
are probably not checked in as binary.

I would checkout your CVSROOT module, cvs co CVSROOT, then add an entry 
like the following to CVSROOT/cvswrappers:

*.png -k 'b'

Add a similar entry for all binary file extensions you are likely to 
add to CVS, like .gif, .jpg, and so on.  Then commit the CVSROOT module.

Afterwards, you will need to delete then add again all of the .png image
files that don't have -kb.  You need to go into the CVS repository directory
and manually remove the .png,v files.  However, I would merely rename them
away until you are sure things are good.  After you add your .png files
again, insure they now have the -kb sticky option, you can then delete the
old renamed .png,v files.
