Yes.

In response to yours:  I will improve the error message displayed
when trying to execute a shell script with DOS line endings so the ^M
doesn't cause half of the message to be overwritten.

The shell is not the place to convert DOS line terminators to Unix line
terminators, so there won't be any auto-conversion taking place.
