CVS patch for cygwin

Cygwin port maintained by: Charles Wilson (bug reports to <>)

I applied the following patch to CVS-1.21.11-1 in order to allow myself
to share sandboxes between WinCVS and cygwin/cvs.

The problem is that WinCVS puts a CR/LF in the file "CVS/Root"
on which cygwin/cvs chokes....

This (trivial) patch solves that problem...

( I prefer not to mount the sandbox as "Text" in cygwin, which might also have fixed it )
