That depends.  If the original import was from Windows to, say, a UNIX
server, then the `import -kb' failed to convert `\r\n' EOLs to `\n' EOLs
in the RCS archives when it should have.  Simply setting the mode to
`-kk', or a more standard `-kkv', via `cvs admin' would not remove those
errant `\r's, meaning that the text files that had their mode changed
would now check out with `\r\n' EOLs on UNIX and undergo conversion to
`\r\r\n' EOLs upon checkout to Windows.
