Jack Repenning reports:

   I betcha CVS is checking the first 512 bytes, or some dodge like
   that, and then merely assuming the rest of the file follows suit.
   Yup, something like that: by experiment, I find that having CRLF
   lines near the top gets fixed throughout the file, as you say, but
   burying them deep (in my experiment, around byte 7000) fools CVS
   and they're left in.
