Then you haven't added it as binary, even if you think you have.  Those 
"two bytes" are most likely "^M"s.

Go take a look at the ",v" file in the repository, and see if you see 
the line "expand  @b@;" as the last line of the header (after the 
"comment @# @;" line).  If you don't see this, your file wasn't added as 

"cvs rm" the file, and commit. Then add it back using the "-kb" option, 
and commit.

I've been checking in .jar files with the CVSNT client (with both CVSNT 
and regular Linux CVS servers) for a couple of years now, and it has 
never added a "couple of bytes".
