The case of

sed -e 's/something/nothing/g' myfile > myfile2

as it works in Cygwin today would mean that in the case of the OP's
drive settings myfile2 would not contain the CR.  Treating CR as white
space is the more proper thing to do, IMO.

myfile is not the script file. The script file is the one that you pass to -f.

Using "rt" was introduced in both cases for Cygwin, so regressions on other systems shouldn't be a problem.
