Please define "windows default behavior", and provide a link to some
official documents here.

You really think that pressing <Enter> while the focus is on an edit
control should actually trigger the default button? This might be
possible for one-line-editcontrols, but it's simply not possible for
multiline edit controls (at least not if you're using the shell edit
control, the one I would consider "windows standard").

Ctrl+Enter only adds CR/LF in single-line tools (like some messenger tools).
But in any other program where you're expected to enter multi line
text, it's the way TSVN does it.
