Well my description was incorrect actually (the steps I gave are broken because of a copy/paste error); the following steps work on NT4 as shown below ( I had forgotten the . at the beginning of the commands i.e test1/test2/run.bat does not work whereas ./test1/test2/run.bat would)

> cd /
> mkdir -p test1/test2
> cat > test1/test2/run.bat
REM start of MSDOS test
REM end of  MSDOS test
> ./test1/test2/run.bat
C:\>REM start of MSDOS test

Press any key to continue . . .

C:\>REM end of  MSDOS test

> cd test1
> ./test2/run.bat
C:\test1>REM start of MSDOS test

Press any key to continue . . .

C:\test1>REM end of  MSDOS test

> cd test2
> ./run.bat

I wish I could. However, I am afraid I'm missing skills to be able to find out the source of the problem and a solution to it. Anibody around that has a good grasp on the code and could spot out the problem?
