It appears that all the offending files I have found so far are *.dcu 
(Delphi Compiled Units) I am deleting them from the repository as they 
should not be in the CVS anyway. This is a binary file, so I am 
concerned that I will come across different binary files with the same 
problem. It will be a long night for me :P

I am now endeavoring to manually repair my modules using trace to 
identify the offending file, and deleting it from the repository. Do 
another checkout with trace and repeat steps :) Please let me know if 
this is alright to do. I have reverted to CVSNT 2.5.03 as it was running 
a lot faster than 2.4.03 on my machines.

Thank you for your help and suggestions.
