Yep, I check the CVS files and that's the problem.

I think Dave Abrahams had that problem once. IIRC, the problem occurs when
you check out a file on one platform, copy it to a machine running the
other platform, and then check the file back in.

I see this sometimes with patched files people send me. I have to strip out
the extra "\r" before committing the file.

We really should have a filter on CVS that doesn't allow certain line
endings to be committed.
