And neither of those files work for me, probably because they have
MS-DOS line endings. It's possible they've been mangled at some point
in the transmission of the email.

When I fix the line endings, both files work, and give the same output
(inverted for one of them, as you said).

I probably can't fix this if I can't replicate it.
