Hm... looks like existing cr's are not the cause, I grepped the source
and this is all that was found:
 address@hidden:~/workspaces/ws03/authservice$ grep -r $'\r' * | grep -v 
node_modules | grep -v target
 Binary file matches
 Binary file 
authservice.web.users.frontend/src/main/frontend/public/favicon.ico matches

(the node_modules and target directories I'm excluding, contains
downloaded files and/or files created by the maven build process)

Thanks for your help!
