"Native' is exactly that - native to the OS which checked out the
working copy. Working copies are not meant to be shared between users
or operating systems.

Check out a separate WC on the Linux machine, or change your eol-style
to LF. But this is really busy work - any text editor worth using in
2010, on any platform, should handle any EOL style perfectly fine, and
programs which read text files for processing should be coded
appropriately to handle any EOL style as well; it's not like CRLF line
endings just appeared yesterday.
