I suspect that the problem is with the EOL conversion in process I/O:
where w32-fns.el carefully sets up the EOL conversions as apropriate
for both input and output, the language environment leaves the EOL
conversion undecided.  Perhaps set-language-environment should inherit
the EOL conversion from the previous setting, at least on Windows?
