You get conflicts when merging a branch to the main trunk when you update
without option -kk at every changed $Rev$ (or $Id$/$Header$).
But when you use option -kk recursively, your binary files in the
repository are broken.
I changed my copy of cvs, that it doesn't overwrite the -kb expansion mode,
i.e. when using "update -kk" the keywords in binary files remain unchanged.

I made a few tests and it works fine for me at the moment.
Are there any reasons to overwrite the -kb expansion mode?
