Yes. The CVS client changes line endings of non-binary files to the local 
system standard.

I don't know why you would want to do such a thing, but the cygwin version of 
CVS may be what you need. When you install, choose the UNIX line ending option. 
Then when you check out files with that cvs, the line endings will be LF 
instead of CRLF.

It seems to me to be a sure-fire way to get really confused, though.
