Thanks to DJ and Larry for the "mount" reminders.
I've now gotten my mounts set to binmode, and I figured out how to
make Emacs write everything in Unix text file mode.
I have an idea about how to deal with "ksh". I tried moving "ksh.exe"
out of the way and adding a symlink from "bash.exe" to "ksh.exe". I
tried some basic primitive tests, and this works fine, but is there
any place where this could cause me problems?
