nope. I used jEdit with jdk1.4.1 for that, which is supposed to know 
about line endings......

I know Peter Royal corrects line endings on files every so often, but I 
don't know what it is that corrupts them. Never really bothered to think 
about it.

It should be easy enough to run some fixCRLF util on the repo (I know 
ant has such a task...). Maybe I'll have a look this weekend.
