You can configure your server to ignore client side "k" wrappers and 
adjust your server's cvswrappers file to handle any file types you use 
that aren't in the standard list.

Use "cvs info cvswrappers" to check what the server settings currently are.

Maybe not, but it's a problem of inconsistency -- if you used multiple 
client types you might have the same file type come in several different 
ways.  It quickly becomes a server problem in that case.
