Good point. Initially I could only get WinCvs to work. I checked in several
files, and now that I have the CLI working, I would like to commit changes
that I have recently made. However, the LF problem haunts me. If I do a CLI
diff on the file now, every single line is considered different. I think
that if I were to check it in using WinCvs that may not be the case -
although now that I think of it, if I get WinCvs to think LF like the CLI, I
will likely have the same problem. Sigh!

Have you ever said why it is that you want to use both WinCVS and
Cygwin cvs?  What's wrong with dumping the Cygwin CVS and just using
the cvs.exe that comes with WinCVS?
