The problems I had were with tests originally authored on Windows, 
checked into svn without an svn:eol-style and then checked out on linux. 
The error message was about inconsistent line endings even though they 
were all consistent, just \r\n rather than \n. I had to dos2unix them 
and then add an svn:eol-style (which not all RCS support) to get things 
working properly...
