  2. Interestingly, I have never been able to reproduce these. Are you simply copying the files from the ZIP archive to Linux? This would explain the problem, because all text files (and hence, shell scripts) in the ZIP file use DOS line endings.
    For Linux and other Unix platforms, use the TAR archives, which contain text files with proper Unix line endings.

  3. Yes, that is the explanation for my troubles. Indeed, my sources reside on a shared Linux drive, but I do majority of development on Windows. And yes, they do originate from zip archive.
    I guess we can close the bug item and and add a FAQ item.

  4. Apparently I have no permission to create FAQ. Considering the fact that the only frequent thing about it is that I have been very frequently fussing about it without a good reason, I guess it may qualify as Fussy Alex Question ;-) I’ll leave the decision up to you.
