I converted some files to be stored as binary diffs, and now when I run 'cvs 
log' one of them gives:
cvs [server aborted]: unrecognized operation '\x0' in 

This is with 2.5.01 on both the client and the server. The status of the 
file is:

File: ChainWindowListandWatch.bmp       Status: Up-to-date

   Working revision:    1.5
   Repository revision: 1.5 
   Expansion option:    B
   Commit Identifier:   19842de5ac657fa
   Sticky Tag:          (none)
   Sticky Date:         (none)
   Sticky Options:      -kB
   Merge From:          (none)

Any ideas how I might go about fixing this? I can send copies of the 
repository file if anyone wanted to track the bug down.
