The client code performs any conversions (from the local text-base,
which is an exact representation of what the server sent). This is
because there may be keyword substitution going on as well.

The server normally stores the files as LF, but you can get into a state
where files contain CRLF, but this is usually caused by external tools
messing with the line endings when they shouldn't.

If the diff is showing that the EOL changed for each line, it is
definitely the client that is at fault (but not necessarily the
Subversion client). It could just have easily been Tortoise...
