Hi Arthur,

It has the same effect as specifying "-W" on the command line as 
mentioned before, ie. it appears to cause all the other cvswrapper 
entries to be ignored, corrupting binary files.

btw, comparing a dump of the client-server session when specifying this 
default wildcard or not, appears to show that when you do specify the 
wrapper option the CVSNT client is telling the GNU CVS server to set the 
keyword to be "-ko" for a file that has a "-kb" wrapper entry:
