Just a thought Jon
In Preferences>Remote Systems>Files you can set a file to be binary
instead of text and then nothing should mess with the line endings.

Sorry Jon, I must have missed that sentence. Beside that I have no idea
why the linefeed characters are changed by RDi.

Correct.

What editor does your client use? Lpex, Text, Html? If it is not the
Lpex editor I would enable "Show whitespace characters" on "Preferences
- General - Editors -Text Editors". Maybe that helps to figure out when
the line feed characters are changed (loading, editing or saving).
