Line ending inconsistency

From: Robin Becker <robin_at_reportlab.com>

I was un-nerved recently when after making some changes and attempting to revert
  I was told that there were line ending inconsistencies in the source stream.

The problem seemed to be that the original source contained a single 0x0D
character and that prevented SVN from continuing. Attempts to update also caused
this problem. I believe the original file in the CVS repository had this problem
and it was propagated into the svn repository via cvs2svn.

The fix involved going from svn:eol-style native to binary and back.

Can anyone give a clear description of when this problem is liable to happen
and what is the 'correct' way to fix up a file when this happens?
