My post on a separate thread brings up what seems to be the same issue.
I'm seeing a modified file when I clone a git repository created on my 
linux machine,
onto a Windows machine.  I tried gc'ing the repo, setting core.autocrlf to 
true on the
Windows machine, changing from cygwin git to msysgit, nothing helps. 

Cloning to a linux machine does not show the modified file.
