If you're doing the work on a Windows box, why wouldn't the application expect Windows EOL characters?  I think there's some missing information here...  offhand the only reason I can think of your request making sense is that if you are using WinCVS to checkout the repository onto some shared drive (using NFS, or Samba) and your tools are being run on a UNIX box.  But, since you're using WinCVS on the development side, and you're using a Windows Batch file on the automated side, I don't understand where the requirement for UNIX EOL is.....
