[cvsnt] Binary files and updating import

I'm experiencing the following misbehavior with CVSNT 2.5.03 (both
client and server under Windows) while tracking third-party sources.
I've imported a first version of the source tree to the vendor branch
using 'cvs import', using the -W option to specify which files are
binary files. Later I updated the vendor branch with newer third-party
versions of the source tree, again using 'cvs import' (as in ), but
this time without the -W option, because no binary files were added,
only existing ones updated. What happens though is that the updated
versions of binary files are truncated at the first Ctrl-Z character
(ASCII 26) in the repository.
Is this a known issue? It seems to me that it qualifies as a bug.
