CVS merge of binary files - bug work-arounds?

IDEA-21298 has been an issue for years, but no fixes in sight.

What do folks do when they use the cvs merge (-j -j) feature and it picks up binary file changes.

The only solution I have, is to check for binary (-kb) files, and hand copy them from the branch
I'm merging from.

I'm hoping there is some other way, as I'd assume there would be a lot more pressure to fix the bug otherwise.

Not having experienced it myself, I know of no workaround except using using a different cvs client. I will look into this bug and  see if I can fix it.
