Yes, it does. To prevent this, you have to checkin everything in
'binary' mode (-kb). Every other option (-k...) performs this

1. To be more precise: CVS does not do this conversion; it lets the
   C run-time do this.

2. If you use CVS on Cygwin, and Cygwin is set to use Unix line endings
   (which I do not recommend, as it results in other problems), then
   there will be no conversion. Note, however, that some of the outputs
   of CVS look ugly in this case, too.
