Prior to 1.1b7, Wing would get confused about line endings to insert on
lines added with the editor.

This happened both on typing in certain cases (I believe it was almost
always was using CRLF on win32) or when you pasted text from another file
with different line endings.

As far as we know, the problems with mis-matching line endings have been
fixed, but of course any previously mixed up files would need to be
corrected.  I'm wondering whether previously munged files are confusing
the new algorithm more since it's actually trying to match line endings
correctly where 1.1b6 didn't really do that?

It should now be matching what's already in the file, which it determines
by looking at the end of the first line. If there aren't any existing line
endings in a file, the default is determined by the preference

If you're definately seeing Wing munge line endings now in previously
correct files, please send any additional details you have to

We'll in any case re-test this here again as well.

Thanks, and sorry about the problems.
