If you require LF-wrapped files, then set eol-style=LF. Why use native

Yet those problems have been documented on this very mailing list.

Try it this way: you can't share a WC created under Cygwin with the
Win32 SVN clients. You face many of the same issues you face when
sharing a WC between Win32 and *NIX.
