Thanks for the report. I wonder if inhibit-eol-conversion should not
apply to processes, or should only apply to buffers visiting files, or
if there should be a process-specific version of i-e-c? Because as it
stands I think several places will break if ^M appears in process output
(eg vc-bzr). Binding inhibit-eol-conversion to nil around every single
process call doesn't sound sensible. But then term.el does the opposite,
binding it to t. Hmm. So maybe a process-specific version of
inhibit-eol-conversion, defaulting to nil?
