Thanks for the reply... sorry about the big time lapse.

Doesn't appear that CRLF is a problem:

sed -n l < .inputrc

  ## C-x C-r to reread this init file$
  ## "\\M-S": "TERM=vt200;export TERM; ssh root@fwobsd"$
  "\\M-a": "awk 'BEGIN{ print ( )}'"$
  "\\M-d": "date +\\"%s\\""$
  "\\M-e": "ps wwaux|grep emacsc"$

All newlines..., plus the times I had init files with CRLF there was
always some kind of error message.
