What do you mean with working copy diff? The file didn't change for
Tortoise, as eol-style: native "reverts" the LF-changes in the repo
transparantly in your working copy. That's what you wanted.

It may, at least with everything which works on bytes and different
environment, like hashes, signatures, reading for some reason from
your versioned files with some tools etc. Those things will become
error prone, as depending on your environment you may work on
different line endings.

But that's exactly what the documentation says Subversion will do. :-)
