Yes, it is correct. See my response to your other email.

The text \x0d is a clue.

I tried creating the "read-file-list.txt" file on Linux and then
copying it over to Windows and it works just fine.

I suspect the only reason it processes the last file is because there
is no blank line at the end of your "read-file-list.txt" and Lilypond
manages to detect the last line as a filename.
