Subversion has better handling for binaries.  Not sure if it will solve 
the problem but it's one of the factors that caused us to switch from 
CVS to SVN (among others).

If you do go the SVN route, use the "fsfs" storage - it's much more 
robust and recovers better from any corruption than the others available 
in SVN (at least that's my experience anyway).

Good luck :)
