Actually, this is probably wholly my fault, and not Trac. Yesterday I
did this on my work desktop, which is sadly, Windows. So I had
downloaded the patch Alexander sent to my Windows box and then uploaded
it from there. I know Windows likes to use different conventions than
Unix, especially with newlines - I'm thinking that even though I didn't
edit the file manually, that perhaps Windows, seeing it was a text file,
saved it in its own format when it saved the attachment.
I know the above is just a guess and not very technically accurate. So,
I'll probably do a test here soon with a fake ticket to see if that is
indeed the case.
Sorry for the trouble, and thanks Randy for helping set it straight.
