IIRC, my problem was that I needed to apply a diff that had been created
from a source tree using the UNIX format (no CR), to a source tree that I
had modified with a text editor that had converted some files to the DOS
format (with carriage returns).
I agree that this feature should probably not be included, but if someone
needs it he can find it in my previous post.
By the way, --binary does not help.
