about a year ago there were a few CVSNT versions that corrupted binary files in precisely this way (by treating the files as text files).
But this was quickly fixed and I have not heard about this since. Maybe the bug is still there hidden in seldom used commands like deletion of binary file revisions?

In actual fact, why did you delete this single revision?
If it was erroneous and the rev 1.1 was correct then you could have committed a copy of 1.1 over a checked out 1.2 and thus gotten rev 1.3.

It is usually a bad practice to delete file revisions from a version control system, better to use the built-in functions to put the correct version in there instead.

Subject: [cvsnt] deleting a binary file revision



Since I got no responses from the CVSGUI Yahoo-Group, I'm repeating my
question here:

I've got a problem deleting a binary file revision. The file has got
the options "-kb".

First version of binary was 1.1. Then I committed a new version 1.2.
After deleting version 1.2 with "Admin options -> Delete
revisions...", the actual version is 1.1 again, but is different from
the original version 1.1.
As far as I see, all "0x0a" in the original file are changed
to "0x0d", and "0xa0a0" are changed to "0x0d0d0a".

Is deleting file revisions unusable for binary files?

Kind regards
