While adding files to my CVS repository I found some files had keywords in 
them.  I didn't want them expanded (third party source) so I put the file 
back to its original state and did:

cvs update -ko <file>
cvs commit -m "..." <file>

When doing a cvs status <file> it didn't show the sticky tag as being set. 
When I executed the same two lines above again the sticky tag did show up 
when executing status.  I then deleted my sandbox and checked out the 
project again.  It didn't appear as if the sticky option was set on this 
file after I checked it out.  Is this the case?  If so, how do I turn off 
keyword expansion for this file forever, for me and everyone else who checks 
out this file?
