I use Cygwin and Subversion, but not directly together (I always use
TortoiseSVN, never the command line client). I haven't followed this
tread closely, so this may be irrelevant, but as I understand it,
Cygwin recently changed the default for how it handles line
endings. This caused a lot of scripts that I had which contained DOS
line endings to break (even blank lines caused "syntax error:
unexpected end of file"), as well as other problems that didn't seem
to go away even after converting my line endings to unix style. I
got the problem to disappear (without ever really understanding it)
by adding a system variable called "SHELLOPTS" with the value
"igncr". Email me directly if you need more info about that.
