IF (and that's a big "if") you're lucky enough to be working on systems
that do not differentiate between text and binary files (Unix and Linux,
for example, do not; Windows does), then all you have to do is use admin
-kkv to change the repository files and then update -kkv to update your
working directory.  If your system *does* distinguish, then you have a
much more complicated process ahead of you.  Probably the easiest way to
fix it would be to use admin -kkv as above to change the repository
files, edit the CVS/Entries file(s) in your working directory to remove
the -kb from each line, touch all of the files to update their
modification times, then do a commit.
