Just reporting a potential problem discovered by one of my engineers to
see if others agree...

I've done some quick tests using version 1.2.3

When using 'svn blame' under Windows, the resultant annotated file
always has UNIX line endings, regardless of the line style associated
with the file.

Anyone seen the same problem?

Anyone agree with this suggestion?

Thanks in advance,
