When you send PULL or PUSH messages to Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator (MS DTC), if you include "\r\n" at the end, MS DTC only sends the "\n" at the end of PULL and PUSH messages and may periodically drop the connections.

To comply with the TIP specification, MS DTC should consider "\r\n" as valid at the end of a line. The "\n" should be treated as a blank line.
