I attach an extended patch which covers "cvs.texinfo" and
"sanity.sh", too.

In "cvs.texinfo", the "XXXX" must be replaced by the CVS version
number including the patch. This is vital information, because
the use of "-kk" can destroy binary file without the patch.

The "keyword2-20k" test has unexpected behaviour. It outputs
two "U binfile.dat" lines. This may be a bug in updating
binary files exposed but not caused by my patch. I leave the
analysis to someone more familiar with "cvs" than I am.
