If that's the point, then fine, do that, but then you must check out
and manipulate the working copy exclusively from windows. It's only
"native" to the OS doing the Subversion manipulation. So if you check
out on Unix, you get Unix linefeeds. If you then try to edit that
working copy on Windows, the linefeeds are Unix-native, not Windows-
native. Hence the problem.
