That's exactly what -k+L, etc. do and the way it should be done - 
specifying files which for whatever reason must be in a specific line 
ending on all platforms.

Making -k+L client side only so it works against legacy servers is a 
possibility for 2.6 but it'll just have to go on the (ever increasing at 
the moment) list - no changes to 2.5 are going to happen now.

It really looks like you should be running cygwin in your case - you're 
writing unix files not windows ones (be careful not to use windows 
editors on the files).  Running windows across samba is a bit of a 
corner case - we don't even support checking out to samba shares oficially.
