Actually, doesn't cygwin also consider the native eol-style to be LF? I think if you want CRLF line endings, you have to use a "real" Windows client, not cygwin.

If you can't configure Visual Studio to understand LF line endings, and you cannot switch to an editor that understands LF line endings, then I agree you have a problem. I'm sorry, I don't have any more solutions.

I do remember that years ago when we configured UltraEdit to understand LF line endings, there were four separate settings / checkboxes / radio buttons that had to be set a particular way on several different settings screens. It was a nightmare because one of our committers would inevitably forget to set one of the options and begin messing up the line endings.
