And that's EXACTLY your problem (as we mentioned before):
Cygwin will checkout/handle the files with LF lineendings, while native
SVN clients will checkout/handle the files with CRLF lineendings.
If you use both clients, everything gets mixed up and your working copy
gets broken.

But that's just one incompatibility which arises (the most obvious one).
The working copy format is handled a little bit different on Linux and
Windows. And they are not compatible. That's a fact which won't get
changed (you can try asking on the Subversion mailing list, but you will
discover that they gave up trying to keep them compatible long ago).
