The Delphi IDE and compiler don't handle Unix line feeds consistently. The end result is typically only noticed when debugging. When you step through the application code you'll notice that the blue dots in the gutter that indicate compiled lines don't match up to the actual lines. The solution to this problem is to use a Unix-to-DOS text file conversion utility such as BWTEXT to remove the invalid LF characters and replace them with CR-LF character pairs.
