I just went to some lengths to import and update some code of mine into

There are about 90 files in the project. When I checkout the project
files, there are 4 files that are mangled and I can't seem to get them


The .ico file is binary and correctly set up to be stored as binary in
the repository. The other 3 are text. If I fix up the mangling and
commit the files back to CVS, update leaves them alone but a checkout
into a fresh directory gives the garbage stuff again.

The mangling appears as "Asian" characters on every second line of the
text files. For example, the file resource.h should be:

// Microsoft Visual C++ generated include file.
// Used by MFCPCons.rc
#define IDM_ABOUTBOX 0x0010
#define IDD_ABOUTBOX 100
#define IDS_ABOUTBOX 101
#define IDR_MAINFRAME 128

and what it appears as is:

// Used by MFCPCons.rc
#define IDM_ABOUTBOX 0x0010
#define IDS_ABOUTBOX 101
#define IDR_MAINFRAME 128

Any ideas? I still have the original files and can recreate from them if
