Until you have nailed what is happening I would stay away from any other 
tools than original CLI ones. If problem remains, are you sure you don't 
have some global git setting messing with line endings?

I downloaded that file using wget and it ended up identical to my 
original file. However, I was wrong: that FS line and one other in line 
14395 does contain \a (0x07) - and they are supposed to. They can be 
seen with 'less'. But there are no \r in the entire file unless you tell 
git to add them on checkout.
