Since you didn't say what kind of a machine your CVS server is, I had to
consult my crystal ball.  It tell me you're using a Unix-like system.
When you "moved the code" from the Windows box to the server, you didn't
convert the line endings from the Windows <CR><LF> to the Unix <LF>, so
all the <CR>s got put into the repository as data.  Now when your
developers check them out, each line ends with <CR><CR><LF>, which
whatever they're using to display the files interprets as double

You need to re-import the files correctly.  The simplest thing to do is
to import them directly from the windows box rather than messing around
with moving them to the server first.
