I noticed this too the first few times I unzipped postsrc.zip until I
remebered that
unzip(I'm assuming Thomas your using the same one I am) has a "-a"
option to convert
all text files to the proper line endings regardless of where the file
originated.
i.e. if you do "unzip -a postsrc.zip" the problems with DOS EOL
characters goes
away.
