So far I've only seen it on Unicode XML files (-ku), not on rc files, but if I understand the mechanism correctly it could affect them. What seems to happen is that only the \r\n's are counted as lines on the way in, and all \r\n's are converted to \r's. However, when trying to extract the file all \r's are converted to \r\n's, so there are too many lines now and things go bad in a hurry and all previous revisions are corrupt due to the reverse-delta. My solution was to go to tape backups and bring out the last valid file, and have the developer fix the newlines before committing them. HTH chuck
