We have had similar errors when we changed. The only solution I had was to remove these files from the CVS repo and finally re-add them in the svn repo. Of course this works only if there are only a few files (it was 6 in our case)

The actual cause in our case was: CVSNT (!) has saved these files (they were all binary) with a '0' somewhere in the file what the converter didn't like...

Best regards
