Potentially problematic, though I could live with it as long
as there are no such files in /etc or /boot, and the like.
But which UNIX editors habitually create such files?
I could create such files with ee. I stumbeled over the
issue when I tried to minedit some Makefile in the ports
tree, but I forgot which one.
- or is it seen primarily with files created on non-UNIX?
