Yes, that is exactly the case. If svn:eol-style=native, then
Subversion assumes that file is stored with all LF line-endings in
the repository. The client then changes line-endings in the working-
copy file if necessary.

I seem to recall an old bug in cvs2svn whereby it automatically sets
svn:eol-style=native on all files without the RCS '-kb' flags, but
then failed normalize the file to LF. Perhaps you were using an old
version of cvs2svn?
