It gets weirder on OS X (yes, I have one OS X box running...). It uses \r\n
*and* \n.  

Macs have been that way since '84 or so.

There have been various bugs with it since 3.0.X. Specifically, things
like multi-line SQL statements, the Error/Warning line numbers reported,

Usually, there's a "unix line feed" option... but just something to
think about:
Mac OS X is expected to have 5-10 million new users adopting in the
next year.
*Every single one* of those users is getting a box with Apache+PHP
pre-installed (tho not entirely configured.)

That's a lot of "fix your linefeed" bug responses....
