A possible quick fix (though not an acceptable solution in the long 
run) may be to copy one of those squares to the clipboard, do a Find, 
paste the square into the "Search for:" box, enter "\r" (without the 
quotes) in the "Replace with:" box, check the Grep checkbox. Hit 
return to exit the Find box. Then hit
Cmd-Option-R (Replace all). That will put the carriage returns where 
they belong.

It seems that for some reason Alpha is interpreting the file as being 
a Mac text, though it is in effect in Unix format. The squares are in 
effect line-feed characters, that Unix uses as end-of-line, instead 
of the carriage-return used in Macs up to OS 9.
