Same as I had before I upgraded to 22.3 (and I wasn't seeing anything
then like what you describe either).  It's the official one from GNU, I
believe.  Nothing weird that could be traced back to the EmacsW32 CVS
build, then.

So it isn't likely that it's that particular function giving you this
problem, although there are ways to find out.  We'll save that for now.

OK, it's not before-save-hook then.

Wow, this is weird.

OK, next thing is to see if you have the same behavior with -Q.

This will run Emacs with absolutely no add-ons or customizations
whatsoever.  You and I should be able to do the same thing and get the
same results then.

I just tested this with my own copy of Emacs 22.2, and my file edits
retain whitespace and blank lines at the end of files.  If yours
doesn't, then maybe you ought to get a new copy of Emacs (22.3 came out
last week) and try that.
