While the approach of turning CRLF into LF as a workaround is a good
one, I do not see this loop doing that; instead it is removing CR
anywhere on the line unconditionally.  

It might not make a difference in practice to rely on the assumption
that nobody sane would place a lone CR in the middle of a line, but
it feels dirty.

Because I know this was lifted from an existing code, I think it may
be better to take this patch as-is, but the code screams loudly that
it wants a clean-up patch to fix that immediately on top of it.
