I have already seen eol-style cause trouble:
I have my working copy on a linux server, but am using TortoiseSVN on
Windows to do SVN operations conveniently. So sometimes I do an svn up
from Windows via a Samba share on the server.
Now, if eol-style is set to native, this causes some scripts to get CRLF
line endings, which will result in very weird errors when trying to use
them on the linux box the next time. Some of those took quite some time
to get figured out.

So from what I can tell, they do more harm than they can prevent. Feel
free to point me to a different scenario where they actually help.
