If these are committed to cvs containing \r's then that's a bug: cvs stores
text files with \n's only internally and windows clients convert those to
and from \r\n on update/commit. However if you commit a file with \r\n line
endings from a unix box and then check out on a windows machine you end up
with \r\r\n endings, and that's not good :-)
