That's a good question!

As an experiment, I deleted the file from both my working copies, then
updated the directories to get fresh copies. This time both are the same
length, and both use CR/LF line terminations. That's as expected given
the machine runs Windows.

I'll do a fresh checkout of my trunk working copy. It is an old one that
may have checked out some files before our svn:eol-style processing was

Thanks for bringing this up!
