I'm another using 1.10.
With some windows (based on cvs 1.9.28) command line clients and 
OS/2 EMX (based on Andreas Hubers port of CVS 1.10) pserver 
and command line clients.

What I have in my cvswrappers is lines like 

*.DOC -k 'b'
*.[Dd][Oo][Cc] -k 'b'

The first line makes the case insensitive OS/2 EMX port happy to
treat foo.DoC as binary.
The second lets the windows port treat foo.DoC as binary too.

My guess is you want to do like the second line if you have
windows clients adding or importing to your repository.
