I hope you mean just dos linefeeds :)

$ ascii 0xe5
ASCII 14/5 is decimal 229, hex e5, octal 345, bits 11100101: meta-e

This character isn't/shouldn't be affected by dos2unix, which should
only have an effect on \r=0x0d immediately preceeding \n=0x0a.

You might just figure out where the character is, and I hope it isn't
in the functional code..
