I'm a light cvs user for 2 years and recently tried installing a cvsnt 
server on a local winXP machine, but am having problems with binary files.

So far I've had this problem with both .xls files and .mat (matlab binary 
data) files: I have both extensions listed in cvswrappers, but the files 
when checked back out are corrupt. I add the files using the -kb option, 
but they're still corrupt when I check the files out from the repository. 
Sometimes the files are so corrupt that the excel/matlab refuse to read 
them. Sometimes the software can read them but the data has changed 

I've never experienced this before! Even without cvswrappers, add -kb 
should always work correctly, no?

On the client side I used both smartcvs and cygwin to do the add/commit 
and checkout, and it makes no difference, so I'm thinking it's the server.

THanks in advance,
