Normally, this happens because either the repository file or the working
file isn't correctly marked as binary.  Since this is an old revision,
it could have been the working file that was checked in to create that
revision that wasn't set correctly, or it might have been that the
repository file wasn't set correctly then (even though it might be now).
You can use ``cvs log'' to determine the setting on the repository file
and ``cvs status'' in the affected working directory to determine the
setting on the working file.
