Check if you've set the svn:eol-style property on that file. Also make
sure that the svn:mime-type property is set to something else than
"text/". Otherwise Subversion will change the file on commit (translate
lineendings). Of course, this could only happen if you've set up your
autoprops wrong.

You should also make sure that you have the latest OS servicepacks
installed, especially on the server. For example, there's a known
problem with WinXP without any servicepacks which prevents Subversion
from working correctly.
