It sounds like the editor is changing the EOL style, perhaps only on
some lines (some ill-mannered editors do this).

Try throwing the file at a hex viewer/editor both before and after
editing, and make sure that all your LFs have CRs. Most likely you'll
find that on some lines you have LFs alone without CRs, indicating that
the editor probably opened the file in binary mode rather than text
mode. In this case, you should probably convert the file to LF-only,
assuming that everybody using the file is using the same editor.
Alternatively, get a better editor :)
