This problem is such a b*tch! Let me tell you guys what else I have tried.
You see, Borland C++ used to store *.dfms as binary files. But people had
trouble committing *.dfms to cvs. So not too long ago, Borland C++ decided
to store *.dfms as text files. But they still have a feature to turn the *.dfm
files back to binary. So I tried turning the *.dfms back to binary form, and
recommitting everything. Well, now Borland was able to compile everything,
but I found shortly after that the corruption of the *.dfms was in a different
place. A lot of the pictures stored in the forms were all screwed up. So I
guess the files were just messed up in another way. That's strange, because
the import command correctly detected that *.dfms were now binary files.
So much for that attempt.

Okay, I can try doing that. I would have tried it a while ago if there was a link
to download it in the KB article, but you actually have to talk to microsoft and
have them send it especially to you. They say in the article:
"In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may
be canceled if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that a specific
update will resolve your problem. The typical support costs will apply to additional
support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific update in question."
So does that mean if I call their technical support number and I tell them to send
me the file, they'll cancel the charges? Hopefully that's the case.
I took put the password back on the apache server, but I'll let you try some things
if getting this fix doesn't work.
