Not a bug. In Mac text files lines end in \r. In Unix text files
lines end in \n. In windows text files lines end in \r\n.
TextWrangler must save files in mac format while TeXShop saves them
in Unix format. You can do a search for (\r(\n)?|\n) and that will
find end of lines in all of the text file types.
