Yes, that's the problem.  The CVS client does very little processing,
almost everything is done on the server.  You can display both the
client and server versions by using ``cvs version'' (not --version). 
The problematic server is running CVS 1.11.1p1, which is positively
ancient and predates the change to avoid annotating binary files.
