Did the file originate on a different system? I'm thinking
of LF vs. CRLF for line terminations. Many implementations
of "vi" (and windoze programs like "word") will accept either
termination but it may confuse C programs that don't expect it.

If get/print changes the file, I'd look at special characters
(including CRLF) and file protection.
