Are you going to BOSC 2007 Chris?

How strange! I have no experience with the internals of CVS so can't 
help you there. What are the four offending files? Maybe we could just 
purge them for the move to SVN.

Also, I suspect (but have not checked this) that a few of the examples 
files in the unit tests have been checked in as binary files rather than 
text (due to some odd differences in new lines across platforms). Again, 
a CVS expert would probably be able to generate a list of all "binary" 
files in the repository fairly easily.
