You can 'fix' the RCS files in the way you suggest, but you may run into trouble with binary files (i.e. files where keyword substitution is set to 'b'). My solution to a similar problem was to patch CVS (the standard version, not the CVSNT branch) to accept CRs before LF. You can have the patch if you like, it's about 20 lines.
