Scripts in Cygwin acting strangely

Bash scripting in my Cygwin environment that used to work so well is now acting strangely.

To illustrate see how variable $i works with echo but fails with ls, given a file like this...
$ cat /tmp/psif
pointsec
pointsec/docs
pointsec/docs/Architecture.doc

And a script like this...
$ cat /tmp/ww
#!/usr/bin/bash -x
for i in `cat /tmp/psif`
do
echo $i
ls -dl $i
read x
done

When I run it with -x for debgging I get this....
$ /tmp/ww
++ cat /tmp/psif
+ for i in '`cat /tmp/psif`'
+ echo $'pointsec\r'
pointsec
+ ls -dl $'pointsec\r'
: No such file or directory
+ read x

+ for i in '`cat /tmp/psif`'
+ echo $'pointsec/docs\r'
pointsec/docs
+ ls -dl $'pointsec/docs\r'
: No such file or directorydocs
+ read x

+ for i in '`cat /tmp/psif`'
+ echo $'pointsec/docs/Architecture.doc\r'
pointsec/docs/Architecture.doc
+ ls -dl $'pointsec/docs/Architecture.doc\r'
: No such file or directorydocs/Architecture.doc
+ read x

Anyone have an idea what's going on?

Yes, the directory you are trying to 'ls' does not exist in the path from wich you are executing the script.

"No such file or directory docs/Architecture.doc"

/tmp/psif is created using a DOS editor and has \r in the end. Do

dos2unix /tmp/psif

and then use your same script.
