I don't know if this is really a problem.
I sometimes do a matplotlib SVN co from the Windows half of my
laptop (I have a dial-up connection and a winmodem without linux
drivers) and then reboot to linux in order to build the source. Then I
get an error due to __init__.py having windows line endings (CR). I
don't get this error allways. I was wondering, how come that the svn
trunk has CR line endings of some files? Is this normal for a svn
checkout on windows?
