Oh, I see the problem.
I'm just parsing a file with Unix end-of-lines on a Windows
machine. (PyLint's own code, if you want to know)
The checks use os.linesep="\r\n" to split lines ending
with "\n". Hence the messages.

I will try to come with good test cases.

I was actually suggesting changes similar to the following:
[ in logilab.common.astng.astng, in resolve(), line 249 ]
                    return ASTNGManager().astng_from_module_name(modname)
                except KeyboardInterrupt:
KeyboardInterrupt is really about a crash wanted by the user!
