Read-line bug in STk 4.0.1 - missing control-Ms.

I found a bug in read-line under linux/intel. It seems to be dropping
the control-M character. It looks like a piece of MS DOS/MS Windows
support made it into the unix side.

To reproduce this:
 1. Make a file foo whose first line contains a control M, as in:
       Do control-Ms ( ) work right in stk?
                      Make this a control-m.
 2. Run the following in STk:

       (with-input-from-file "foo" read-line)

 3. Note that the return string doesn't contain a control-M.

This is in STk 4.0.1 (installed on RH 6.1 from RPM STk-4.0.1-1).
