I'm not a batch-file expert, but the following "test.bat" - called in
an existing sandbox directory - reproduced the problem for me:

-----test.bat START-----
@echo off
md mergesticky
cvs add mergesticky
cvs update -A mergesticky
cd mergesticky
echo binary >BinaryMerge.txt
cvs add -kb BinaryMerge.txt
cvs commit -m "Baseline version" BinaryMerge.txt
cd ..
cvs update -rsomebranch -jHEAD mergesticky
cvs status mergesticky/BinaryMerge.txt
cvs update -rsomebranch -jHEAD mergesticky
cvs status mergesticky/BinaryMerge.txt
-----test.bat END-----

Please note the Sticky Options in the two "cvs status" outputs.

Best regards,
O. Koltermann
