Many thanks Earnie. Stripping out the CR's with:
	tr -d '\015'
did the trick. The script now runs fine on Linux!

With the growth of Linux, I bet there will be a lot
of code moved between it and Cygwin both ways.

The Cygwin folks should make a note of this "gotcha".
Or did I forget to RTFM?

The Linux people should provide a less misleading
bash error message than "No such file or directory"!
