[ic] Templates getting lost during edit on admin UI

For what it's worth, I upgraded to 4.6.1 on our server and the problem 
still persists.

We've been able to track the problem down to (what appears to be) a CR/LF 
translation problem. The template is there, in tact, but in the template 
"header", the LF that separates the two lines simply becomes a CR (I think) 
and the two lines display one one, and Windows shows the little block 
character in between.  If I use a Windows client to 'ftp' in, view the file 
in ASCII mode (with Notepad), and replace the CR with a CR/LF, the page 
reverts back to normal.  So, ignorant as I am, it seems the LF *nix wants 
gets stripped.

This problem has freaked us out more that once, but the fix is easy.

Good luck!
