Just recently CVS has started intermittently committing files without
stripping off carriage returns.  What I'm seeing is that the text in the ,v
file has CRLF (x0D0A) endings, so when I check it out on a different machine
the file has CRCRLF (x0D0D0A) endings.  It doesn't seem to happen
predictably, maybe 50% of the time.

There is no unix system anywhere in the picture, and I'm using TortoiseCVS
as the frontend, with bundled CVSNT 2.0.11.  I did just install the latest
WinCVS beta if that would affect anything...

Any ideas?
