Under Windows Server 2003, ssh appends CR to some command outputs (eg when I execute hostname). This is causing some of my scripts to fail. I have tried fiddling with the CYGWIN environment variable, but it doesn't seem to help.
Attached are some simple test cases and cygcheck output. Any suggestions?
Yes.  First, send problem reports to the Cygwin list.  The Cygwin apps list
is for packaging issues and 'setup.exe' discussions/issues.  Please respect
the Reply-To I've set and remove cygwin-apps from the recipient list if you
intend to follow-up on this thread.

Second, install the 'coreutils' package.  You're calling the Windows
'hostname' executable.  You need the Cygwin one.

This is probably a problem with $PATH when not running an interactive shell, like this:

  $ echo $PATH
  $ type hostname
  hostname is /usr/bin/hostname

  $ ssh localhost 'echo $PATH'
  $ ssh localhost type hostname
  hostname is /cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/hostname

Yep. My eyes were playing tricks on me. I would have sworn that the cygcheck output was missing the 'coreutils' package, which would also cause such a problem. But looking again, the package is there so this has to be a path issue, as you noted.
