OK thanks,
I have now retrieved the latest CVS file versions on trunk and copied
them into my svn working copy with the corrupted exe files so I could
commit them to svn. And before I committed them I also explicitly set
the file MIME properties to binary (using the SmartSvn properties
Now when I export trunk they are OK.
So at least as long as one stays on trunk these files will be OK.
