Thanks Craig -- usually in vim it'll mention if the file appears to be
DOS line endings, or it will show "^M" as Control-Ms, and it doesn't
appear to be the case with the i18n files. The only thing that is
indicated is "noeol", which I believe means no end-of-line at end of
file. If it means there are no linefeeds, that would perhaps explain it.

I'm BTW using vim on Ubuntu linux with everything set as UTF-8, and just
using the regular GNU diff.
