Thanks Spiro, you may be on to something. BBEdit on the Mac lets you choose
which type of line endings to use, and I have my default set to Unix. I've
tried diff with some files which are definitely Unix endings and it's OK.
However lots of my files have Mac endings :-(. They are probably based on
files from the Bad Old Days before I used CVS. I'll try to convert them to
Unix as I go through them.
