Gemfile.lock created in Unix is always updated on Windows when running bundle install #1105

When a Gemfile.lock created in Unix (with Unix-style line endings) is used in Windows, Bundler will always attempt to update Gemfile.lock such that it includes Windows line endings, even if there are no actual changes to make to the file.

Here's where the issue is:
definition.rb checks the Gemfile.lock contents with Windows line-endings against the contents of the file which (as I said) already has Unix line endings.

The code to convert windows line endings to Unix endings only runs after the files are compared. I'm not sure if this would cause other problems, but as far as I can tell, this would fix it:
Move this:
# Convert to \r\n if the existing lock has them
# i.e., Windows with git config core.autocrlf=true
contents.gsub!(/\n/, "\r\n") if @lockfile_contents.match("\r\n")

Above this:
return if @lockfile_contents == contents
