We have imported several very old C sources and running
during the import in a very special problem.

All files including a 0x1A (control Z) the file is truncated
from including the 0x1A character till end of the file
(please don't tell me I should remove control characters).

This happens with all CVSNT version including the latest
2.5.02 (Servalan) Build 2115.

But when I add and commit such a file everything is working.
Modifying such a file and commit is also working perfect.

This looks to me there is a bug in the import function.

What happens with other control characters too ?
Could I expect something similar ?
