That's certainly an odd place to be seeing a new error.  According to
`cvs annotate', that line has been around since 1995.  Could another
error be cascading?  Could something about your setup have added the
bad character?  Could some #define change have allowed new sections of
the code to be compiled on Windows when they weren't before?

It sounds like maybe your compiler was expecting a Windows EOL (\r\n)
and found a UNIX one (\n, or 0x0a).  Is your client set to check out
with UNIX EOLs (WinCVS and the stock CVS client compiled under Cygnus
of MKS is capable of this, but the stock CVS client compile Win32 will
not do this)?  Perhaps the UNIX-like diff tool you used is a little
too UNIX-like and converted your line endings to \n while it was working?

Cheers,

Derek
