I don't think so. I assume, somebody with an *nix system is getting the
files from Trevor with CR LF line endings. When this person checks them in,
CR and LF characters are kept unchanged, and they can be properly checked
out on a *nix system, because they also don't get converted in this
direction, since the target system don't need this. But, a conversion
occurs (as it should) when they're checked out from a Win32 platform.
I assume Trevor forced somehow his client to correct the problem, probably
by specifying somewhere that .ds[pw] files are binary, thus disabling the
LF -> CR LF conversion (which is normal on Win32 platforms), or he's using
a cvs client inside a *nix-like environment running on top of Win32.
