Subversion is not weird; it does exactly what it's told to do.

It sounds like whoever put the files into this repository has set the
"svn:eol-style" property of these files to "native". This means that
when checked out or exported on Linux or Mac OS X, the files will
have LF line endings, and when checked out or exported on Windows,
the files will have CRLF line endings. This is so that normal text
editors will be able to deal with the text files using the line
ending style that is usual for the operating system in question. You
showed that you're using Windows, so that's why you're getting CRLF
line endings.

If LF line endings are always desired for these files, even on
Windows, then the svn:eol-style property of these files should be set
to LF, not native.
