Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11 (Client/Server)

Environment CVS_RSH=ssh first. Then cvs commands are executed either from the
DOS prompt or from bash. The results are the same.

I suspect the CR is filtered out somewhere. They are definately in the
repository. The files were created on a Samba share using the Borland IDE which
produces CRLF's, before importing and commiting with a Linux client to a Linux
server. Linux's CVS works perfectly and has no problem with the CR's. It is
only Cygwin that has the problem with the existing repository.

I will have to look into mounts. It is a default install but setting
CYGWIN=binmode doesn't help.
