It's up to the client to convert from the local line ending conventions
to the cannonical LF-only format before sending the file to the server
(for non-binary files; binary files never undergo conversion).  If you
use a Unix client to checkin DOS files, you will not get the correct
conversion.  Likewise, some clients have configurable line ending
conversions and configuring them incorrectly will cause the same problem
(I think WinCVS falls into this category, but I'm not sure; and I have
no idea whether cygwin does or not).
