Few months ago we have changed the substitution mode for binaries files
from -kb to -kB with the cvs command :

cvs checkout: Dropping data: pos>vec->text.nlines

extract from repository the HEAD to a sand box using module name (all is

the server crashed and propose to create a crash dump file.
This file is too large to send you by mail (7Mo in zip file) but I can
send it to you by ftp if you provide me a ftp server address.
The ,v file, raised the problem, being too large to I can provide it to you

thanks to your help
