CVS Binary Corruption

I have started noticing that any binary file check into CVS from IDEA causes it to check out corrupt. The same file checked in with TortoiseCVS works ok and checks out fine on both IDEA and TortoiseCVS. Anyone know a fix for this or how to update the integraded version of CVS?

Cheers.

Make sure that you check the file in as binary. The commandline option
is -kb, but there's a corresponding dropdown box in IDEA's CVS Add File
dialog. I think it's something like "Keyword Replacement: None".

NO! "Keyword Replacement: None" is a text file option. Newlines should
also be changed.

Woops! Sorry about that. I should have checked before spewing forth. The
Add File dialog (which you must have enabled in the project's CVS
configuration) has a specific "binary" option.
