Some text editors preserve BOM when they see it in the file, although they might hide it from you while editing.
Try opening the file with some editor (for example Geany from geany.org) which is aware of the actual bytes used and allows you to remove them. Geany has an option "write Unicode BOM" in the document menu. Just uncheck that checkbox and save th file.
