Thanks for the tip. I'll use --lf only for unicode files.

Yes it is nasty.  I originally patched NetBeans so that it would edit unicode files; as other things were changed in time this bug showed up and I didn't have time to go back into netbeans source code and see what the problem is. Just made all of my files have only 0x000A for line endings.  I plan to look at Netbeans source code again to see if I can find the problem.  Sometimes I feel I'm the only one using NetBeans with unicode source code but I like it so that math equations can be written with familiar Greek symbols.
