It was line endings -- in Editor.py line 276 it checks the preference
for autoconversion of line endings. While this must have been enabled

files created on Windows and Linux, i.e. it will preserve the line

Subject: eric4 open file always 'modified'
To: eric at riverbankcomputing.com
Running version eric4-4.2.5(r2785), python 2.5.1, Windows XP editing
any file at all (in other words just displaying a file in the editor)
causes eric4 to believe that the file has modifications, so it prompts
to save, discard, abort every file when closing. If I open file in
the editor, make no changes, and then File|Save, no prompt is issued.
Just to test a bit I opened eric4.py instead of one of my own files
and it behaves the same way.
Is this a line ending or 'tabs to spaces' issue? maybe?
