  Hmm, well it might or might not be, it depends what method it's using to
determine the native mode.

  If it was simply fopen()ing a file in text mode and writing, it would of
course "respect" textmode mounts automatically.  Perhaps it manages it all
manually by always writing in binary mode, and it inherently assumes that all
filing systems operate in the same textmode, and some test it does misleads

  It also depends on the attitude of the upstream maintainers to accepting
platform-specific patches.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
