Apparently, there was a Null character at the end of the file. Deleting this fixed the file, but I have no desire to have to manually change the file every time someone commits a new version! ( or whatever caused that Null character to appear.) Has anyone had experience with this? Could it be because I had manually un-write-protected the file, and someone then committed a new version? Anyone have a more sane idea?
