Thanks for the info.  Unfortunately it's not what i would expect.  
If i told git diff specifically to ignore line endings, why is --name-status  
showing me a file as being modified when the only modification is the very 
thing i told it to ignore.  
The same thing for --stat, why is it showing me a file with zero changes?  Just 
my opinion though.

I'll tell you why this is a problem for me, basically what i am doing is 
running the "git diff --ignore-space-at-eol --name-status "  on my root 
directory to give to someone else who is not using git to give them the files 
that i have modified.  I don't want to give them a file where only the line 
ending has changed.

Cheers.                                           --
