When a file is added to a repository, Subversion tries to guess its type.
Check the svn:mime-type of the file. Probably it's set to "application/text"
or not at all. Set it to "application/octet-stream" and Subversion will
treat the file as binary and ignore any newline byte sequences in the
You can also set auto-props for the .icns extension to make sure that these
files get the proper attributes in the future.

There is and there will probably never be such an option for TortoiseSVN,
since it's built into Subversion.
