The standard is a straight through cable for things that are supposed to
be connected together (e.g. computer to a switch or hub) and cross-overs
to things being directly connected together that would normally go
through something else (e.g. computers directly together).

I wouldn't expect any device to "expect" the wrong type of cable
according to the *usual* ways of cabling things.  Quite a few things
will automatically accommodate using the wrong cable, but I wouldn't
expect that sort of behaviour.
