This is most odd. I can certainly confirm that although the VC7 editor
has no problem with CR only line termination the compile seems sometimes
to treat them as an EOF.
The odd thing is I have never seen CR only (the CR CR is infact 2 lines)
line termination before,. LF only is the usual UNIX format, CRLF the old
DOS format. The compilers work fine with either of these but sequences
of CR only are bad news.

The other odd thing is that I have no problems with the uBLAS files I
pulled from boost CVS. Infact they seem to be CRLF terminated. Maybe
this is due to some kind of CVS configuration problem.
