Question Will they know am a repeat applicant?

My CS report will be released at the end of Oct. By that time, may be it is too late to apply for the 2013 match. However, I may still want to try small number of programs. My question is, if I am not able to get into any program in 2013 match, will program directors know I have submitted application the previous year and have a negative impression on me when I apply for 2014 match?

I've done some research into this issue, the best answer I found is that programs will know you are a repeat applicant if you have applied to them last year but programs that you apply for the first time to them they will not know.
