Thanks for the reminder, I fixed this now on the emacs-25 branch.
(The proposed patch was not entirely correct, although it was in the
right direction, and happened to fix this particular case.)

It is indeed a shame that such a simple bug was left unresolved for
such a long time, but better late than never.

Yes, that would be very welcome, thanks.  Looks like coding-tests.el
is a good place to add such a test.  Please be sure to include lone ^M
characters, as well as those followed by a newline, so that we are
sure lone CRs are not removed.
