As a workaround, if you have PO or POT files with Windows EOL conventions, please run "tr -d '\r'" on them before using the GNU gettext tools on them.

I observe the bug also on Linux, but only with an additional --width argument:
$ msguniq --to-code=utf-8 -w 200 eolbug.pot > eolbug.out

The resulting eolbug.out has a first line that looks like this:
#: .\edu\templates\edu\home.html:69<CR> #: .\edu\templates\edu\music_country.html:34<CR>

No information has been lost; you only got that impression because the second part on the line overwrote the first part on the screen.

But a stray <CR>, not succeeded by <LF>, is evidently causing trouble in editors and possibly syntax errors in some other tools.

(file #42379, file #42380)

eolbug.pot file : (save it as CRLF EOL)

#: .\edu\templates\edu\home.html:69
#: .\edu\templates\edu\music_country.html:34
#, python-format
msgid "Hi"
msgstr ""

then run:

msguniq --to-code=utf-8 eolbug.pot


#: .\edu\templates\edu\home.html:69
#: .\edu\templates\edu\music_country.html:34
#, python-format
msgid "Hi"
msgstr ""


warning: Could not open file /usr/share/gettext/styles/po-default.css

#, python-format
msgid "Hi"
msgstr ""

(the warning is ok, but resulting output has incorrect syntax and lost information)

But if the file is using LF EOL, file is processed fine.
