Of course, I forgot I can check this myself...

Your bind9 repo has:

   bind9$ cat .gitattributes 
   *.sln.in eol=crlf
   *.vcxproj.in eol=crlf
   *.vcxproj.filters.in eol=crlf
   *.dsw eol=crlf
   win32utils/**.txt eol=crlf

I suppose contrib/dlz/example/win32/dxdriver.dsw is the only file which
doesn't already have crlf in the version stored in the repo, so it is
the only one actually rewritten in the working copy...
