You don't provide all the details for your work flow; however, there are
options that can be set that change how SVN handles newlines. Setting
the svn:eol-style property on the files in question might help with the
problem. Maybe you have already looked into this. In case you have not
here are some links.

Properties are discussed at length here:

The svn:eol-style property is discussed here
