That's probably the problem. You are supposed to check out windows style 
on windows and unix style on unix. Then work on them, then commit. CVS 
will take care of the rest.

If you try to outsmart CVS and then your editor messes up with line 
endings (sometimes it happens if you use more than one editor, or if you 
just installed a new version and forgot to configure it) CVS gets those 
nasty double returns.
