There are various settings in git-config (either ~/.gitconfig,
.git/config) which can cause line endings to be modified in the working
tree, `core.{eol,safecrlf,autocrlf}` are the main ones I see in git-
config(1). You might have one of those in an unexpected location?

I think that .gitattributes has similar controls, which might explain
it affecting only a single file.
