Yes, Ryan is correct - I didn't read the error message you were
getting carefully enough. My script fixes revision properties only, so
it won't be of use for your particular issue. Perhaps a tool like
svndumptool (http://svn.borg.ch/svndumptool/) will be able to do the
job? I've never used it, but I recall something in the documentation
about fixing end of line errors.
