You probably had a batch of DOS-formatted files on Linux and didn't bother
converting them to Unix format. Then you put them into the repository.
So the files in fact are considered to contain character 13 at the end
of each line, exactly what DOS text files look like on Unix.

When CVS checks these out to a Windows box, it assumes that a conversion
must take place, since they are assumed to be Unix files. So CR LF
becomes CR CR LF.
