Unzipping the files with the "-ll" option should fix that. There's no
particular reason why the kernel should handle CR+LF; LF has been the
end-of-line character for UN*X systems since Adam was a cowboy.
Changing it now would only lead to a situation where some things would
work with CR+LF and others wouldn't. Let's keep it simple...
