Thanks to Vincent, I figured out what's going on. I had core.autocrlf
= true in my git config (github recommended adding it). The thing is,
it's only supposed to remove windows CR line endings before stuff gets
checked in, but for some reason it was also adding them to certain
files when I cloned (on a linux system). Removing the setting in my
git config fixed my problem. Cue the windows bashing ...
