According to http://db.apache.org/derby/manuals/dita.html, the commands 
to be put in the .subversion/config file are

*.dita = svn:eol-style=native
*.ditamap = svn:eol-style=native
*.out = svn:eol-style=native

My diff files always indicate that this property is set -- for example,

  Property changes on: src/ref/rrefattribtracedirectory.dita
  Name: svn:eol-style
     + native

But this should have no effect on the behavior of Arbortext. Maybe 
Arbortext works differently on Windows and UNIX. We have a UNIX version.
