Thanks for your help Arthur,

Our CVS server is using version 1.11.22 on a Solaris X86 box, using pserver to 
our clients.  Our clients are using Windows, Solaris Sparc, Solaris x86 and 
Ubuntu, spread across fours sites around the world.

Thanks for the links below, I will read through and see if it helps in 
resolving our problem.

Hi Norman,

What version of CVS server are you using?  In particular is it 1.11,
1.12 or 2.0, 2.5, 2.8 (CVSNT)?

The cvswrappers file defines the 'default' mode for files added to the 
repository, this mode can be many things including binary or non-binary.
Eg: with CVSNT it can specify unicode, ascii, binary, efficient binary, 
unix-line-endings, windows-line-endings, reserved mode, unreserved mode...

But under 'default' circumstances - any settings in 'cvswrappers' can be 
overridden by the client.  Again if using CVSNT (on
windows/linux/hpux/solaris/mac) you can set the server compatibility options to 
'ignore client side kopt' so that the cvswrappers settings are always used.

Does that help?
