svn patch only repairs EOLs if the svn:eol-style enforces a fixed
value (such as CR or CRLF). Try setting svn:eol-style to 'CRLF' on
the patch target. Then you'll see dos-style newlines in the patched result.

Admittedly, we may want to repair EOLs in more scenarios (such as
eol-style = native).

No, it's working as expected.

Try passing TRUE for the 'repair' parameter:

                                       "\r\n", TRUE,
