Yes, I think you're correct, the text-base seems to always contain the
LF eol. So you're saying that once a file has been committed once, it
behaves correctly thereafter? In that case then I would agree that it
sounds like a problem with the import. I'm not sure how the Polarion
tool works so it is possible that it imported the file as CRLF instead
of LF which is now causing the problem.
