Hidden Characters?by tame1 (Pilgrim)

tame1 has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Recently, (and ONLY recently) I have begun experiencing a problem which I should not be having.
We are all familiar with what happens when you transfer a file with the wrong method, etc.? the #! line gets a hidden character and you can't run the program from the command line.
Well, lately when I write a program with my emacs (this is on a linux system), and I run it from the command line, I get the old "text file busy" response. I have to cp the file to somewhere else, then cp it back. Suddenly it will work.
Why is emacs suddenly inserting some kind of hidden character? This hasn't happened before in the years I have used emacs! Please help!
CC reply to firstname.lastname@example.org please.
