We do this all the time and I've never seen this happen. What is the
EXACT command you are using to do the merge? Do you have a cvsrc file -
if so what are the options in there?
If you do a status of one of these files what is the EXACT output?

No - lf conversion is not used with binary files.

Don't do that.
