It's dead simple: just use the 'd2u' program on your script files, it will
convert the line-endings from dos to unix format and everything will be fine.
Alternatively, there is a shell option for recent versions of bash called
'igncr' that persuades it to ignore CR when it finds one at the cost of a bit
of slowdown executing scripts. See item #4 in the recent bash release
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
