:) That's how my rulebook works too.  

So we just got the short-end?  A long(?) standing behavior of cygwin
and DOS paths and a recent change to bash that eliminates support for
\r's.  I guess we were living on the edge of something that wasn't 
supposed to work at all and didn't even know it.  :/

We'll try to figure out some workaround for our environment.  I just
going "pure cygwin" was an option.

Thanks for the insights.
