HELP: Read in bash gives extra new-line

I use the usertools from cygnus v. 1.8 as in a shell script I use
something like

echo -n "Text"
read var
echo -n "Text2"
read var2

If I type a value for var followed by Enter then the next read-statement
is not correctly executed.

If  I type a value for var followed by a "\" then the second
read-statement is correctly executed.

What solutions are there?
