To confuse things even more.... :-)

I am 99% sure that you can tell Cygwin to treat text files and native
Windows files. This means that the Cygwin CVS client can be used, but
only if it is configured correctly.

(This by the way, is the biggest thing that pisses me off about Cygwin.
If I am on a Windows box, I want _Unix_ tools that work like _windows_
tools. Not Unix tools that create files that I can't use with the windows
tools already on the box.)
