Maybe.  If your (server) platform distinguishes between text and binary
files (Windows does, Unix-like systems don't), then your repository is
corrupt.  The simplest fix is to just re-import the problem files
correctly (reimporting the other files isn't necessary, but doesn't
hurt, either).  If your platform doesn't distinguish between text and
binary files, then your repository is fine and all you need to do is use
the admin command to set the files to binary mode for clients that do
