yes, but the above is a different issue. I committed some temproraty 
build files that I should not have added. In Eclipse you get a list of 
files that you want to include or not when adding new files. There is a 
handy "select all" button.

Of course in the command line you could do "svn ci .", but somehow I 
don't often fall into that trap and always do the right thing of "svn 
status" first as well as, *crucially*, reading the output. Somehow I am 
blind to the GUI output.

In other words, it's stupid human error and I'm blaming the tools!

The svn:line-endings thing was fixed, as you expect, by configuring 
things correctly in the standard svn properties. I've recently moved to 
a new machine and had forgotten to do the necessary config on SVN.

Once again, stupid user error.
