Hmmm, yes...

Oh well, from its "tool-tip" (its only help), which refers to the "checkout"
command, I really interpreted that as _just_ meaning that files with Unix
EOLs are/aren't converted to DOS into my local HD (just like my editor(s)
would/wouldn't do); but I never thought it would mess up with the commit.

Ha, you might have a new version.. I'll check it out.

BTW, I most likely introduced the problem again.
So I re-commited (with the second check turned off).
I hope it fixes the problem now (for good).
