tortoisecvs corrupted my pdf-files!!!

I have some pdf-files under tortoisecvs and it worked fine for about 1 month AFAIR... Then yesterday I installed windows xpsp2 sdk (don't know if it's relevant) and wanted to see my pdf-documents with acrobat reader.

It couldn't - complained about corrupt file. I thought windows xpsp2 sdk had corrupted the binary files for acrobat reader so I repaired, removed, re-installed, and repaired acrobat reader again - didn't help.

Now I downloaded one of the files from the internet again and it's 399 kb whereas the one I get from cvs update is roughly larger than 400 kb. Strange...

I then wanted to commit this new file (instead of the corrupt one) and discovered that in the "format"-column it says the file is text/ascii.

First, let me get this straight: A pdf-file is binary, isn't it? ? ?

So what I'm wondering about is that since I sometimes download files to/from a linux system and also work on a xp system then somehow it changed all instances of CR to CR+LF or whatever in this corrupt pdf-file?

There's only one revision of the pdf-file (head 1.1), so I don't understand why it doesn't work anymore...? I don't think there's anything wrong with acrobat reader anymore, since other pdf-files that are not in that repository works.
