Yes, it is exactly as you stated.

You are correct.  I had a line in my cvs controlled file, that
contained the cvs key word $Log$.  That key word was automatically
substituted with the cvs log for that file during the normal course
using cvs to manage the file.  Part of that "log" section, supplied by
cvs, did not contain a ^M character at the end of the line.

:-D

I removed the offending log and now my file looks normal while
omitting the C-x RET c!  Thank you very much!
