Here's what's confusing.  The JDK doesn't run as a cygwin-controlls process, so
it should be bound to cygwin's notion of a line terminator.  It should use the
platform default, which for Windows is CRLF.  Therefore, everything that deals
with lines in Java/Windows should consider CRLF to be a line terminator.

My cygwin is set up to use CRLF as a line terminator.  One of the reasons for
this is to smooth interactions like this between cygwin and Java.  I don't want
to have to worry about line terminator differences.  So even if theoretically
Java is asking cygwin for its line terminator, it should also be getting CRLF.

I looked at AbstractCVSTask and it wasn't immediately evident how the cvspass
file is being dealt with.
