No, it'S not,m it's working as expected. The fix is already implemented as
well, by specifying your nonstandard line ending.

anyevent cannot guess that the server you use is buggy - you have to
specify that yourself. breaking other programs and protocols because of a
single broken program is never good.

Yeah, it works correct as it is, and breaks for everybody else with your
change - not a good tradeoff.
