 from http://durak.org/cvswebsites/doc/cvs_66.php:

In CVS version 1.12.2 and later, the keyword expansion mode provided on  
the command line to any CVS command no longer overrides the `-kb' keyword  
expansion mode setting for binary files, though it will still override  
other default keyword expansion modes. You can now safely merge using  
`-kk' to avoid spurious conflicts on lines containing RCS keywords, even  
when your repository contains binary files.
