I suspect that the "client" vs. "client/server" is a red herring.
If I understand the distinction, it should have no bearing on
newline conversion.

Perhaps Joe has a .cvsrc (or the Windows equivalent) that forces
all commits to "-kb".  That would be one explanation for this

BTW, 1.11 is ancient -- many bugs have been fixed since then.
All of you (not just "Joe") should consider upgrading to 1.11.5.
