Let me please state, that I am really sorry for causing this
inconvenience. I wasn't even aware of this problem until it was too
late. I am also not sure how this happened, because my windows setup is
correct, i.e. replaces that to the linux line endings.

Since process is C++11 only, I don't know which current compiler would
have problem with that though.

I'll get this fixed until the next release; if there is to be a 1.64.1
I'll get it done before that.
