On native eol-style, Subversion internally stores LF line endings.

I would expect that your merges set the new native eol-property on the
files you committed and Subversion harmonizes files to LF line endings,
but all other changes to line endings get ignored. Which should be
what you expect, as native eol-property says that the subversion
client should handle line endings on commits and updates depending on
your OS.

Where exactly has anything Unix line endings? After your merge in the
working copy, but before a commit or after a commit in another,
updated working copy? I think this is the real problem and everything
is working fine, you just have to look to the files after the proper
operation. If there is a problem it surely is in the handling after
fetching files form the repo, as in the repo as documented above each
file should have Unix line endings in your case.

In my opinion I think the better approach is to use proper tools which
work with different line endings and for example define which to use
as part of a code style.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
