Looks like (in that referenced post) you were telling CVS server to 
override -ko for all the files you were importing...  So it was doing 
what you asked it to do.

"\Program Files\CVSNT\CVSNT\cvs.exe" -ttt -d
":pserver:chrisa <at> localhost:/export/cvsroot" import -I! -ko -m "RM: 
import" scratch/import_bin SCRATCH_VENDBRN SCRATCH_20060918

Better off to fix your cvswrappers file on the server and not use any 
overriding from the client to keep things consistent from everyone. 
Another way is with the -w SPEC param.  It will allow you to be additive 
to the wrappers, which I think is what you intended (but * will still 
get all files, so -w "* -ko" will cause 'o' to be added to all...).
