SVN won't modify the file unless you ask it to. Presumably you haven't
done that.

You sound like you want svn:eol-style set to native. This will
translate eol markers to Unix style in the repository, and native style
in working copies. There are problems with this approach (as with CVS);
see the archives for lots of discussion. Some people (including me)
prefer to set up their Windows tools to use Unix-style eols instead, and
leave svn out of it.
