One thing I forgot to mention and it seems important:
The file and all its revisions were created on Windows and the error 
happened on my Linux system. I copied all repository files from Windows 
to Linux (using an USB memory stick).
On Windows I get the following:

J:\QUARTIS\_dev\doc>cvs -d :sspi:srv-cvs:/MasterCm4 checkout -N -P -r1.1 
-- QUARTIS/_dev/doc/Doc-O-Matic4.zip

No, the log shows nothing unusual.
The current revision is 1.11 and with the last revision the state went 
to dead.
About the good copy:
J:\QUARTIS\_dev\doc>cvs update -r1.1 Doc-O-Matic4.zip
U Doc-O-Matic4.zip

The zip is readable and everything seems to be OK with it...

I suppose it's either the move from Windows to Linux or the cvs checkout
