My guess is that your 1.11 client was compiled against cygwin and thus
assumes (incorrectly, in this case) that text files have lines that end
only with <LF> rather than <CR><LF>, whereas your new 1.11.1p1 client
was *not* compiled against cygwin and thus (correctly) assumes text
file lines end with <CR><LF>.  The net result is that the files in your
repository are screwed up (they have <CR>s at the end of every line as
part of the actual data rather than as part of the line terminator) and
should be fixed.  And you should quit mixing and matching line endings
on a single platform by using cygwin in Unix mode along with normal
Windows tools.
