totem won't play last file of m3u list if there's no windows endline CR/LF

Bug #272761 reported by Pablo Castellano on 2008-09-21

Bug Description

Binary package hint: totem

I have an album ripped using windows so the m3u file has Windows newline CR/LF on every line (those ^M seen in vi).
The problem is when you are playing the album using the m3u file and the last song arrives.
If there's no newline character at the end, totem doesn't parse well the line and shows a popup saying:
"An error occurred. Location not found"
