This depends heavily on the way your software is digesting (resp. 
writing) lines.
The best way to avoid this kind of problem is installing Cygwin. (That's 
a Posix/Unix emulation layer for Windows. Not very fast, since it must 
emulate tons of things that don't quite work the same way under Windows, 
but the fastes porting path from Unixoid to Windowsish worlds.)

I would be interested to read where exactly your code failed.
I.e. the place where program data didn't match your expectations.
