Same Git I always use :) TortoiseGit, it was under cygwin. Something weird
was going on, I deleted the folder and started again (cloned the repo
again) and I had to use d2u on all config* files for it to configure. I
have just tried on a new host (everything is new) and same deal... Very
weird... if I copy and paste the raw file from github, the 0x07 still shows
up... I can see it's not ascii even in FF on line 14263
