That's most likely because the Windows NT version used pure "textmode" (CR/LF)
when dealing with input and output.

I have "ported" pdksh to Cygwin. Is there any reason why you can't use the
version distributed in the net release? Do you have the same problems with the
net release version (5.2.14-2)?

The distributed version (5.2.14 derived) uses automode for input and output.
IIRC, that means reads in textmode/binmode and written in binmode.
