It appears you've made a switch from text mode to binary mode.  Although,
package maintainers have gone to extra trouble to make sure that files that
\r\n line endings can be read by shells and other programs, not all can yet. 
My guess to your problem is that you've \r\n line endings on binary mounts.

You also, have /c mounted as textmode and TEMP=/c/Temp.  This is cause for real
problems as if temporary files are written they will be written in text mode
and read in binary mode.

I suggest for starters that you
  mount -b -f c:/ /c
  mount -b -f d:/ /d
  mount -b -f e:/ /e
and then if you still have problems, look for \r\n line endings and change them
to \n line endings.
