But that is a feature.  If you want to auto-detect eol type,
you should specify just 'latin-1.  Specifying 'latin-1 means
text encoding is regarded as latin-1 but EOL-type is
auto-detected, and if the auto-detection fails (because of a
new file, a file without any EOL, a file with inconsistent
EOL), it falls backs to unix style EOL.

And, for DOS and NT, you may be able to use
untranlated-filesystem-list.
