This may be the same thing Jamie Webb mentioned with darcs' conflict
markers having '\n' line endings while the rest of the file had
'\r\n'.  Perhaps the editor detects unix line endings because of the
'\n' lines and then displaying the '\r's as ^M.

I've sent in a patch that will add a '\r' to the conflict markers when
the file's lines end with '\r'.
