I use dump mode for binary editing of 'stuff'.  I recently came across a
very repeatable issue. Following a binary edit near the file end (its 
large), I found it had removed an &20 (ascii space) next to an &0A (LF). 
The way end-of-line spaces are trimmed has been changed in 4.70 but it
seems to have some unwanted side-effects. To get round the problem make
sure that the option to trim eol spaces is off.

  Mode choices > Edit > Trim trailing spaces of lines before saving

this was at a hex offset of about &bf25 .. Its utterly repeatable with
this file. repeated removals take place later in the file. . i.e. it 
appears to be doing some processing either during edit, or during save, 
in a file that shouldn't have any unexpected edits.
I'll change the code to trim eol spaces so it excludes Dump mode.
