I do not think that in this case ms is the bad guy. Since it does work if I
turn of the crlf conversion. Also with this kind of bug even ms could not

Microsoft.  The newline conversion is handled in the C library.  The
fact that it happens reliably every 4KB on a particular file system
makes me think that it may be related to some filesystem parameters
(like cluster size), but it's possible that it's a bug in the Microsoft
file sharing code rather than the C library since it only happens on
a shared drive.
