Thanks for the info. Rolled out. http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/83395

I suppose patch could be more sophisticated to look at the very first line ending of the file and use that to decided if we are dealing with DOS endings or not.

Would that work?

I really want to get this fixed as I hear about people hitting this often enough (and then I get pings to help land patches....)
