[This is borderline off-topic for a list devoted to the development of

'svn cat' takes into account newline conversion and keyword expansion. So,
if you're on Windows, it would be common for 'svn cat's output to contain
double the end-of-line characters (since repository normal form is line-feed
only, where Windows typical form is carriage-return + line-feed). And if
there are keywords to be expanded client side, that adds more bulk. Does
this explain your specific situation?
