No, it uses a LF only, like on other platforms. (I think that should be clear about this bug report... We fail when we have a file with that byte sequence we never create ourselves). We open most text files as binary in the libsvn_* code on Windows. (Note that we use the other default in our python testsuite)

It is probably nice to fix this specific case as it is above the FS layer, but I don't think we should really start to look at fsfs as EOL agnostic.
