It is likely that you have a windows specific EOL conversion set within the wider config's (i.e. --system, --global). You may have core.safecrlf set
which does a round trip test so tests the conversion both ways.

The default for core.safecrlf is "warn", so one does not need a
setting to get that warning.

Thank you confirming the Git for Windows default, which I don't believe Stefan had realised was active.

I had responded to Stefan's original 'bug' report as no one had picked up on it, and suspected it (core.safecrlf ) was set in Git for Windows, though wasn't able to immediately check it myself.

I did not think it was a bug at all, merely a misunderstanding by Stefan about the safety features within Git (for Windows).
