I assume you are on Windows where autocrlf is the default if you have Git installed. The autocrlf feature will try to
autodetect binary files, but it only works if there is a nul byte wiithin the first 8Kib bytes of the file. You can
turn autocrlf off by setting the core.autocrlf config variable to false locally.
The core.safecrlf or gitattributes that would improve the situtation are not implemented yet. safecrlf is in gerrit, but
nobody seems to care :(, so I've left it until gitattributes supoort appears, which is supposed to come soon, but it
appears there is some delay.
Eclipse allows you to set the workspace to use LF only, even on Windows so you should be able to do cross-platform
work even on Windows without enabling autocrlf. If it is a pure Windows-project you can also disable autocrlf, which
is what I do.
