Bob, I think Glenn's saying that he has set svn:eol-style to native, and he's checking out on a UNIX OS but he wants the eol-style of the files to be native to Windows, not UNIX.

Unfortunately, Glenn, I don't see a way to do that. svn export has an option for this, but svn checkout doesn't.

  --native-eol ARG : use a different EOL marker than the standard
                             system marker for files with the svn:eol-style
                             property set to 'native'.
                             ARG may be one of 'LF', 'CR', 'CRLF'

I used to work at a company where we had the same workflow. We decided to never use svn:eol-style native. Instead, we set svn:eol-style to LF, and configured our Windows editors to know how to deal with such files.
