I routinely observe this problem in the following scenario:
developer runs some text editor on Windows editing the file which
lies on Unix/Linux disk and is accessed via Samba. Then the
commit is made on Unix. Depending on the editor used, CRLFs are
present in the whole file or only in the changed part. CVS can
not do anything about it - and it does not.
