I think you are misreading R7RS here.  It says:

    For the purpose of this procedure, an end of line consists of
    either a linefeed character, a carriage return character, or a
    sequence of a carriage return character followed by a linefeed

I think you misread the last as "a sequence of carriage return characters
followed by a linefeed character".
