This bug reappeared after a patch for bug 717826, 'Scour emits CR CR LF for newlines on Inkscape/Windows'. Now, Scour emits Unix-style line endings (LF) on Windows, except if it's used within Inkscape, where it emits CR LF.

The nature of this bug and bug 717826 makes it hard to fix both at the same time, because they're opposites. I'm of the opinion that this bug is less important, because CR CR LF can actually cause a second newline to be appended in <text> elements after every line, giving the appearance of double spacing, but having LF on all platforms doesn't matter because of SVG's whitespace rules in xml:space="preserve" mode.
