I merged the patches from the list and applied them. St now does on copy
replace ’\r’ with ’\n’ and when it receives some paste item ’\n’ is re‐
placed with ’\r’.

Comrades, please try out the latest st and report back in which applica‐

(pasting to or copying from the application) this is happening.
