It means you have set the svn:eol-style property on a file, thereby
asking Subversion to convert the file's line endings to some style,
but your file does not contain exclusively one EOL style. For
example, maybe some lines of the file are separated by Unix line
endings (LF character) while others are separated by DOS-style line
endings (CR+LF).

We had these kinds of line-ending problems with files from our
programmers who use UltraEdit on Windows, because it has ridiculous
default settings which lead to this kind of nonsense. Perhaps your
editor is similar.

Either that, or you've specified svn:eol-style on a file for which
you did not mean to do so -- for a binary file perhaps?
