I suggest you are doing some non-standard commands.
I have just tested to add a file named dummy.class, which is a copy of
a text file, with the Add Binary button in WinCvs and what happens is
that WinCvs checks the file and finds that it looks like a text file
so it *asks* what to do. By clicking the Ignore button I force my
selection as binary and WinCvs is quite satisfied.
Next I commit the file and it is properly marked as -kb....

And I have *not* fiddled anything with any cvsrc or cvswrappers file
to get this basic behaviour working, it has always worked and probably
will always work.
In this case I am running an old client against a newish server (Win
2000 Server):
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.12 (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) 2.0.38 (client/server)
