For example, it may just be a matter of figuring out which scripts

Having this issue surprise me, recently, on an upgrade of
Bash, I wasn't sure why it had worked before and was not working
I've never used text mounts that I know of -- always binary,
so I was surprised at seeing some change in behavior in this area.
What was changed recently? Was it that the old, line-read
functions quietly removed CR's so bash (et al.) wouldn't see
them even on "binary" mounts?
Seemed to be an increase in compatibility, so it seems like
it was a "Good Thing"(tm), but I just was surprised at it jumping
out so recently.
