I think I got it, and its dead simple too: Try using Shift+Return in a
file that has only CR+LFs. Admittedly, I normally don't use
Shift+Return, but it seems that sometimes when in a typing frenzy I do

Now, this looks like it could've been meant to be a feature, although
a quick check at Scites manual doesn't say so.
