CVSNT is entirely separate from CVS -- you should probably ask this
question on the CVSNT mailing list (see <>).

That should be irrelevant -- files in the repository are *binary* files,
so the standard line ending conventions don't apply to them.  Either
something is horribly wrong with CVSNT (which I sincerely doubt) or
someone did something to your repository files with DOS/Windows commands
that treated them as text files and thus corrupted them.
