Community technical support mailing list was retired 2010 and replaced with a professional technical support team. For assistance please contact: Pre-sales Technical support via email to sales@march-hare.com.

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?
