Error: Inconsistent Line Ending Style

Some time ago, we imported our old PVCS Version Manager repositories
into subversion. At the point that the import was done, the
svn:eol-style property was set to native.
As PVCS was not as sanitary as Subversion with respect to line ends, and
because we had a large number of developers using some rather ill
behaved editors, at the point of import, we had many files that
contained mixed Unix and DOS line ends. Since, we have tightened our
editor control, and all new commits have consistent line ends.
However, if I try to diff ( where the older revision contains mixed line
ends ), or even get the older revision using 'Save Revision To..',
'Open..' etc., I get the error 'Inconsistent Line Ending Style'.
I have tried removing the svn:eol-style property from the file, but this
does not fix the problem. I'm guessing that this is because the property
exists on the older version I am trying to retrieve. All of the other
posts I can find relate to changing editor properties, or removing the
svn:eol-style property. Having tried both of these, it seems that
there's nothing I can do to retrieve the older version of the file.
I would re-import the repository, but my team have done a lot of work
since ( As this problem only occurs with the files which DID contain
mixed line ends, we didn't notice when we tested the import ), and we
don't want to lose the history.
We are using 1.5.5, Build 14361 over svn+ssh ( Backend is a subversion
1.4 repository ).
Does Anyone know how I can fix this?
Other than this one problem, we are absolutely loving both Subversion
and TortoiseSVN. Great tools guys.
