That tells you whether the files in your sandbox were checked out/updated
as binary files.  Although that usually matches the repository, it
doesn't have to (you may have explicitly checked out/updated with a
specific -k option).  You can use cvs log to see what the default
keyword expansion mode is in the repository.

Such drastic measures aren't necessary.  You can use cvs admin to mark
the repository files as binary, do an update to update your working
directory, then check the files.  If they're OK, you're done.  If not,
you need to replace them with good copies and commit them.
