When you install Cygwin, you get the choice of whether to use Windows
newlines or Unix newlines. The only reason I can see that you might
want to use Unix newlines is if you were going to cross-mount your CVS
tree between a Windows and a Unix box. If you set Cygwin to use
Windows newlines you won't have these problems.
