I have a file (or 2) that was accidentally committed as binary (-kb).  

	cvs -d rep admin -kt repository/path/to/file

is supposed to change the file format. However it says:

cvs [admin aborted]: no such directory 'repository/path/to/file'

The last trace line with -t is:
-> Requesting server cvsrc (read-cvsrc2)

However a command such as

	cvs -d rep ls repository/path/to/file

works fine.

A possible alternative procedure of removing the file, committing it and  
adding it again with -kt doesn't work -- the previous file format  
overrides the format from cvs add.

Any ideas gratefully received.
