This sounds like a variation of the LineEnd problem. 
There are three ways of separating lines in text files-

 CR used in Mac 
 LF used in Unix
 CRLF used in Windows

Squeak chose CR as its standard. I would guess you are reading a file 
made on a Windows platform. Find the method 
and see if you can apply it to your file's contents before making your Set.
