Whenever you commit a file, the client sends a stream of binary-diff
data to the server. I can think of a couple of different

   * your text-base cache of the file is corrupt, or has somehow been
tweaked to be slightly different than what's actually in the

   * there's some network problem that corrupting the stream as it travels
