It is. In the repository is stored a crlffile with \r in it which would be changed when you would do a commit (with your current gitattributes)

# only way to resolve is to modify .gitattributes

No. This works too:

git add crlffile
git commit -m .    # practically removes the \r inside the repository
git status crlffile
#shows up clean
