Is that really 2004-04-06 (i.e. 2 years ago)?  Or is this yesterday's

Does that mean that, for you, the current CVS code uses
iso-latin-1-dos for newly-created files?  Or are you saying that both
these versions use Unix-style EOLs?  Because that's what's really
important: whether the default is to create DOS- or Unix-style line
endings; the value of buffer-file-coding-system is just the symptom.
So please tell me whether on your machine new files are created DOS or
Unix style.

I have an old build from 2005-04-17 CVS, which does set
buffer-file-coding-system of new files to iso-latin-1-dos.  But I
don't know when the behavior changed between now and a year ago,
although I have reasons to believe it still worked correctly in
December 2005.
